Autistic Community Summit

Find your community – and your voice in it.

We’re seeking speakers for the 2024 Autistic Community Summit!

We’re looking for autistic individuals who have wisdom and expertise to share with their community to speak at this year’s Summit.

The date for this year’s Autistic Community Summit has not been finalized, but it will take place on one of these dates: November 2, 9, or 16. Breakout sessions will happen between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the chosen date.

The Summit Committee will schedule each session for a specific time slot. This year, speakers can present for 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour. There will be an in person, live event at a venue that has not been chosen yet, however presenters are welcome to present virtually if they are more comfortable. There are usually 12 breakout sessions at the Summit, which means that we will likely need to turn down some of our applicants. We ask that all presentations have at least one neurodivergent speaker.

If you get chosen and present at the Summit, you will get paid $75 and you will get to attend the rest of the Summit for free. All speakers will be paid, no matter how long you speak for.

Full details about speaking are available in the application form.

Applications are due Aug. 2, 2024.
