Welcome to the Penn Autism Network
The Penn Autism Network (PAN) was created in 2005 with a goal of promoting successful transitions to adulthood and improving quality of life for people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). As the outreach and education initiative of the University of Pennsylvania’s Social Learning Disorders Program (SLDP), PAN is a collaborative group of family members, individuals with ASD, and the professionals who work with them. PAN members meet quarterly to discuss goals and visions for expansion of the network.
Our goal is to expand our staff, offerings, and resources to establish Penn as the nexus of activity related to understanding the needs of adults with autism in our region. We work toward finding ways to meet those needs through collaboration with multiple partners.
