Converge Autism Conference 2021


Converge Has Moved To A New Date

After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of our attendees, employees, and guest speakers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Converge Autism Summit amid increased concerns and regulations regarding COVID-19, The new date is May 20th and 21st, 2021 at the Greenville Convention Center. We are delighted that our full lineup of A-list guest speakers graciously made arrangements to join us at this later date so that we can continue to provide a forum for one of the largest gatherings in the autism community and share information about what matters most to them.

Keynote speakers for the event include Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, bestselling author and the founder of Sidekicks, technology used to support those with autism and their families; and Peter Vermeulen, Ph.D., internationally respected autism researcher, founder of Autism in Context and author of more than 15 books on autism published in several countries around the world. Also speaking at the 2021 Converge Autism Summit are professionals of Youth Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, Behavior Analysis, Special Education, Advocacy, and Family Therapy, including experts from Springbrook medical and therapy teams.

Attendees, vendors, and sponsors who have already paid for the event originally scheduled for October 2020 will have the option to transfer their ticket to attend the Converge Autism Summit in May or receive a refund.
