The National Autistic Society’s Professional Conference 2013

A feature sponsored by the UK’s leading charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome), their families and the professionals who work with them.

Do you work with children or adults with autism? Don’t miss this two day conference

This annual two-day conference is a unique opportunity for senior professionals to discuss best practice and share learning. Expert speakers will present an overview of the changing environment and the latest developments in the field of autism. 

Hear the latest information from experts in the field and learn from case studies illustrating best practice. With four different seminar streams to choose from, delegates can select the seminars which are most relevant to their work.

Our programme of top international speakers includes:

  • Rudy Simone, Writer, Singer and Comedienne
  • Dr Peter Vermeulen, Autisme Centraal
  • Professor Patricia Howlin, King’s College London and University of Sydney
  • Andy McDonnell, Studio III Clinical Services
  • Dave Hewett, Intensive Interaction Institute
  • Dean Beadle, Public Speaker and Writer

With yet another year of cutbacks in funding and resources, we wanted to focus on the positive work being done to improve the lives of people with autism. That’s why the theme of this year’s conference is celebrating creativity and innovation. 

By celebrating the creative and innovative work being done across the UK and worldwide, we can gain the inspiration and motivation to keep multiplying our efforts and ensure that people with autism get to live the life they choose.

This event is a great opportunity to hear and network with acknowledged experts in the field and to gain a wealth of knowledge, engage in debate and exchange new ideas.

New this year is the introduction of our inaugural Autism Professionals Awards. They seek to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations who have demonstrated excellence, dedication and commitment to improving the lives of people with autism. There will be a networking drinks reception on the evening of day one, kindly sponsored by Axcis Education followed by an awards dinner to which all delegates are invited.  Find out more about the Awards here.

Don’t delay. Last year’s event was our most popular yet, so book now to avoid disappointment.
