PAR's 2020 Solutions Conference is going virtual! This year's conference will be held from Monday, October 19 through Wednesday, October 21.


The 2020 Solutions Conference is the only conference of its kind in Pennsylvania. Every year, the Solutions Conference brings together outstanding presenters, policymakers, state officials and experts in the Intellectual Disability/Autism field to provide information, engage in Q&A sessions, and participate in public forums. 

Nominations Now Open for 2020 "We Are Worth It." Awards!

Each year, the PAR "We Are Worth It." Awards honor extraordinary Pennsylvanians who have made remarkable contributions to their communities. Help us honor our essential workers! Winners are nominated by PAR Provider Members, who have chosen them from amongst tens of thousands of self advocate employees, direct support professionals, frontline managers and community employers across the commonwealth.

The Awards Ceremony is a major highlight of the Annual PAR Solutions Conference, which welcomed 650 leaders from the Intellectual Disability and Autism community at last year's conference. During this time, award recipients are often moved to tears as they understand how valued they are by their communities. This year’s ceremony will take place virtually on Monday, October 19, 2020. Please plan to join us for this very special ceremony and help us to make it special for all who are involved!

We are accepting nominations in the following categories:

  • Self Advocate Employees
  • Community Employers
  • Frontline Managers
  • Direct Support Professionals

We look forward to hearing the stories of your community champions, especially those who went above and beyond throughout the tough times caused by the global pandemic. Honor these difference-makers by nominating them today!
