The Charlottesville Regional Autism Action Group, representatives from the Commonwealth Autism, Virginia Microboard Association, the Virginia Institute of Autism, and the Region Ten Community Services Board are among the presenters of the event.

The event is expected to shine light on the hurdles adults with autism have to overcome.

"We're incredibly excited to be able to bring together policymakers and advocates to discuss the hurdles adults with autism contend with. Virginia's national ranking for disability services recently moved up from 49th to 41st. We can do a lot better than that," said Mary Anna Dunn of Charlottesville Regional Autism Action Group.
