What is an (Un)Conference?

The Idaho Autism Summit presents our 2021 virtual (Un)Conference!

We know in these uncertain times that things look a little different. This is why we're moving the 2021 Autism Summit to an online format. The virtual (Un)Conference will feature four sessions scheduled as a weekly series every Saturday in April from 10am to 12:30pm on Zoom.

We are planning to provide a way for all people to share their lived experience, knowledge, and ideas about creating and promoting acceptance of people with ASD in our communities. NO CMEs / CEs / CEUs.

Submit your stories

We want each (Un)Conference session to feature stories from our friends and community -- your stories. Can you speak to the human experience? What experience transformed you? What story do you have to tell? What would you like to share?

All great ideas (with a hefty dose of passion and courage) are welcome – they do not have to be “evidence-based”. All speakers are welcome – you do not have to be an "expert”. You just have to speak from the heart. Submissions are due by December 31, 2020. 

We  are looking for:

  • Ted Talk like sessions – 5 to15 minutes long
  • Positive, inspiring, passionate solutions-focused talks
  • Presentations that will inspire and transform (raw and straight from the heart)
  • Poems, art, comedy, and other forms of expression are welcome
  • Involvement of individuals with Autism and their families (planning to execution) is top priority.

Submit your story

If you have any questions about your story submission or the Autism Summit (Un)Conference, please contact Richelle Tierney at
