About ICAN

The International Conference for Autism and Neurodevelopment Disorders (ICAN) offers a distinctive platform for parents and professionals alike. This conference provides a valuable opportunity to engage directly with medical experts who specialize in autism. ICAN aims to foster the exchange of ideas and clinical findings between parents and professionals, with the ultimate goal of enhancing care for individuals on the Autism Spectrum.

It is a special opportunity to connect with medical professionals on one to one basis. Following the success of our previous ICAN conferences in Dubai and Tanzania, we are excited to bring this event to the USA. At ICAN, participants will explore the latest global research advancements and discuss treatments for Autism. This conference serves as a unique forum for scientific and medical dialogue, ultimately benefiting individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
