New Jersey has a number of respected colleges and universities that offer advanced studies in autism-related fields. At the New Jersey Autism Center of Excellence (NJACE) we aim to foster the learning and enrichment of New Jersey students by providing them opportunities to expand their knowledge and skillset.

Through a variety of formats, the NJACE hopes to see students across disciplines participate in our workshops, practica, symposia, and an annual conference related to autism spectrum disorders (ASD). At these events, students will be able to connect with clinical professionals and researchers with expertise in their various fields of study.


Workshops are designed to be both didactic and interactive, providing students with an opportunity to learn from experts in the field of autism. Each workshop will have clearly defined learning objectives for the targeted audience and will cover a critical area of need.


Practica are unique opportunities offered through the NJACE, in which students may be able to engage in autism training in a specialized setting, such as a community-based program or hospital. These opportunities will have predefined learning objectives. 

Bimonthly Symposia

Symposia are presentations by leading professionals designed to incorporate the interests of researchers and healthcare professionals in New Jersey along with the areas of critical needs identified by the autism community and the NJACE. These will be held twice a month. The topics in these speaker series will be deliberately curated to address areas ranging from the causes of autism to the latest innovative approaches to management.

Annual Conference

The NJACE’s annual conference will be an exciting opportunity for students to hear from leading local and national researchers and physicians in the field of autism and related areas. The conferences’ agenda will include a variety of presentations, panel discussions, and workshops on timely and engaging topics in autism spectrum disorder studies.
