Spencer Kelly is in the News!  

Spencer Kelly will be speaking on a self-advocacy panel, at The 13th Annual World Conference for Autism in Las Vegas, NV this November 29th - December 1st for his 2nd year in a row!  Last August 2017, he spoke at The World Conference for Autism on a self-advocacy panel in Portland, OR. Spencer shared his inspiring story of entrepreneurship in creating this successful company while having the extra challenge of having Asperger Syndrome.  He hoped to share and inspire others to keep working to identify and achieve their goals & dreams.  He was also an exhibitor and sold out of all of his products at his booth.  

Some of his favorite conference moments from 2017 were sitting next to Temple Grandin on his panel, having the opportunity for Grandin to stop by his booth & discuss business for a while, as well as celebrating her 70th birthday at a private dinner function!  

Thank you, Dr. Lawrence Kaplan and for this life-transforming invitation! We look forward to joining you again at 
The 13th Annual World Conference on Autism this November 2018 Las Vegas!
