World Autism Organisation Congress 2018- USA

November 12 - November 15

Endorsed by the Autism Society of America, the World Autism Organisation (WAO) congress is a joint venture between Associations from Mexico (notably in Nuevo León), with significant assistance from regional associations and centres from Houston, making it a genuine “Tex-Mex” event. 

Historically, the WAO international congresses attract 1,000 – 1,500 delegates from many countries around the world and with Houston offering such a host city with good access by air and other travel options, WAO is confident that there will be even greater participation. 

Preparations are well under way to ensure that this congress will offer people with autism, their families, friends and relevant professionals a comprehensive programme of well-informed and respected speakers. Diversity of topics, with focus on latest research, practical skill upliftment and personal experiences will be the backbone of the congress programme. Plenary and other relevant presentations will have simultaneous translation into Spanish. 

During the intervals, there will be a large and diverse selection of exhibitors to further enhance knowledge on autism-specific resources, as well as a comprehensive selection of poster presentations.
