2017 Midwest Autism Summer Institute: Advocating for Access – June 22 and 23

For many of us, Summer Vacation includes a trip East to attend the Syracuse University Institute on Communication & Inclusion‘s Autism Summer Institute. This year, however, the ICI will not be hosting a conference on the East Coast. Instead, they will join forces with the University of Northern Iowa for the 2017 Midwest Summer Institute: Inclusion And Communication For All in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
