Annual Conference

Each year in late October The Lewis County Autism Coalition presents a conference in Centralia, Washington geared to parents, educators, community representatives and teens and adults on the spectrum.  In 2017, our 7th conference held October 27, 2017 attracted over 300 participants!  The event was covered in the local newspaper.

Each year a keynote speaker and a variety of breakout sessions focus on a different topic. A vendor fair and lunch are presented. Conference fees are reasonable, and include lunch.
