The Autism In Entertainment Conference, is a groundbreaking event that will take place on Friday, April 5, 2024 at the prestigious Skirball Cultural Center. This one-day, in-person conference will be bringing together industry leaders and advocates to explore ways to bridge the gap between the ASD community and the entertainment industry. Our goal is to provide a platform that will empower individuals with ASD to showcase their talent and creativity, and to help them find meaningful employment opportunities within the entertainment industry. Join us in breaking down the barriers and supporting autism in entertainment! The conference is being hosted by the Orange County Asperger’s Support Group (OCASG) working with the Autism In Entertainment Workgroup with support from Zavikon. Zavikon is an employment agency whose mission is to place neurodivergent individuals, as well as those with disabilities, in career-oriented meaningful jobs. Zavikon uses a supported placement model to set both employer and employee up for success. Funding is being provided by a grant from the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS), which serves Regional Center clients throughout California to improve access to services that increase pathways to employment.
