WHEN IS AUTREAT?
August 8 - 12, 2011
WHERE IS AUTREAT?
Autreat is held in the Johnstown campus of University of Pittsburgh,
in Johnstown, Pennsylvania (NOT IN PITTSBURGH!). The campus has plenty
of open space for walking, recreation, and enjoying the outdoors. It
has air-conditioned lodging in apartment-style residence halls.
WHAT IS AUTREAT?
Autreat is a retreat-style conference run by autistic people, for
autistic people and our friends.
Autreat focuses on positive living with autism, NOT on causes, cures,
or ways to make us more normal.
HOW IS AUTREAT DIFFERENT FROM TYPICAL AUTISM CONFERENCES?
Typical autism conferences are about autistic people, but are
primarily for the benefit of researchers, service providers, or
families. Autreat is an opportunity for autistic people and those with
related developmental differences, our friends, and supporters to come
together, discover and explore autistic connections, and develop
advocacy skills, all in an autistic-friendly environment. Family
members and professionals are welcome to attend, but the structure and
content of this event are determined by the interests and
sensibilities of autistic people.
