PATC Rewind: The Personal Stories Collection

An illustration of a lightbulb with the text PATC: InnovateWe hope everyone who was able to join us at this year’s Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference (PATC) found it as inspiring as we did. For those of you who were not able to attend, many of the resources shared at PATC are available for download available on the PATC 2020 section on  

Today we wanted to highlight the Personal Stories Collection located right on the main page of the link above. This section highlights personal stories shared by individuals with autism. These stories describe their experiences in a way that was meaningful to them and ODP is happy to give contributors a forum to do that. There 18 unique stories including written narratives, animated videos, and video interviews - a little something for everyone! Please share these stories with anyone who might be interested.
