This conference is a collaborative venture between Belle Vue House Assessment Centre and Edge Hill University.

It attracts a wide audience every year; over 300 delegates attended in 2013.

If you are a relative or professional living or working with a young person who is diagnosed with Autism you will know that the barriers within education, employment, and social situations are significant. The impact that the complexities of Autism has upon life situations is very real.

Communication is a key factor in addressing the needs of young people with Autism and by addressing this issue, windows of opportunity are opened,  enabling young people to progress, in terms of furthering their education and employment options, by improving self-esteem and confidence or simply by offering an opportunity to feel included in society, to feel valued and understood.

The conference would be of interest to:

  • Teachers
  • Support Assistants
  • LEA staff
  • Allied health professionals
  • Speech and language therapists
  • Educational psychologists
  • Parents/carers or others who are meeting the needs of those with Autism
  • Academics
  • Medical practitioners
