The Nation’s Premier Autism and Disabilities Conference

“I think that one of the big opportunities that people get from coming to OCALICON is that it is one of the best conferences in the U.S. that allows policy makers, researchers, educators, and people with disabilities, to all come together and learn from each other.” LeDerick Horne
Speaker, Author, Special Education Consultant
