“This was my first time attending OCALICON. It was a fabulous experience. As a related service provider who typically attends professional-specific conferences, this was refreshing to see various aspects and perspectives (other professionals, parents, persons and disabilities).”
OCALICON 2020 seeks proposals from professionals, scholars, family members, self-advocates, researchers, service providers, educators, and leaders in the fields of autism, sensory disabilities, low-incidence, and other disabilities.
OCALICON will select proposals and build a 3-day program of breakout sessions that are interactive and comprehensive, focusing on topics of national significance and targeted toward an experienced audience.
The best proposals typically highlight the implementation of session content through engaging discussions, real world examples, new perspectives or various points of view, new technologies/innovations, and/or interactive manipulatives. OCALICON attendees are eager to engage and want to learn principles and strategies they can take back to apply and implement in their own work, home, school, or community setting.
Breakout sessions address different population targets and diverse topics across the lifespan. They are presented in a variety of session formats designed to best meet the needs and interests of adult learners.
