Scott Campbell | President – Autism Society of Northern VA

The Accessibility Summit is an unparalleled celebration of God’s handiwork, as it is demonstrated in and through people with special needs. If you want or need to be encouraged, equipped, entertained, and energized, I highly recommend the Accessibility Summit.

The Accessibility Summit provides an extraordinary opportunity for information and learning.  The resources, vendors, and speakers open up many possibilities for families.  A MUST event!

Jerry Hulick | The Washington Group Special Care Planning Team

The Summit was both educational and inspiring. I learned many things to take back to my church as we are starting a ministry for people with disabilities. All of the volunteers were kind, cheerful, and helpful.  A wonderful experience – I will be back next year.

Denise Peitzman

I have attended the Accessibility Summit for the past 6 years and it is my favorite time of year. It has become a place where I can connect with people who understand and share my passion for individuals with disabilities.

Amy Kendall | Saddleback Church – Lake Forest, CA

The Accessibility Summit is a vital resource for parents of children and young adults with special needs. As the father of an 18 year old son, I know the challenges of effectively parenting, caring for, training, nurturing, and educating children and young adults with special needs.

Chris Williams

The Accessibility Conference is a place where parents raising children with special needs and professionals who work with them can share experiences and recommend resources.  It's the high point of my year!
