17th Annual Autism Conference

Cultivating an Evidence-Based Practice



ABAI is committed to providing a welcoming, accessible environment for all attendees. If you require an accommodation for a disability, please contact us at Our team will write back to confirm, and the same email address may be used for additional questions or follow-up. We will make every effort to accommodate all requests, within the logistical limits of our venues.


Getting Around Seattle

ABAI makes full use of the hotel and center facilities, and events are spread out. There are many places to sit and rest in the hallways, in large corridors outside the ballrooms, near the session rooms, and in the lobbies. If you use mobility aids, we recommend bringing them or arranging for a rental ahead of time.*
