Communication: The Key to Success – 7th International Conference

This conference is a collaborative venture between Belle Vue House Assessment Centre and Edge Hill University. It attracts a wide audience every year; over 400 delegates attended in 2012.

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

Communication is a key factor in addressing the needs of such young people 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.
