Wednesday 1st June 2016  

8:30 am2:00 pm

Manchester Conference Centre

Developed in association with Autism Together, the second annual Autism conference will help to develop a better understanding of the needs of autistic people, including actual experiences of those on the autistic spectrum, as well as informative insight into services available.

Autism ConferenceThe programme will focus on life stages ie childhood, adolescence, and the transition to adulthood, focusing on key challenges such as diagnosis, education, SEN, family and social situations, employment, identity, and more. Presentations from those with first-hand experience of autism will be supplemented by practical sessions which are designed to be transferable, encouraging adoption across different teams and organisations.

Open Forum Events are delighted to be gaining a reputation for “truly inspirational” health and social care conferences. Delegate feedback from our last Autism conference includes:

“A good introduction to autism and services”
“Interesting information on current thinking and initiatives”
“A good insight and very good networking”

Join us at Autism: The Challenges and Opportunities to hear the latest developments in autism care and support, and examples of best practice from leading organisations across the health and social care and education sectors. You will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as sharing your own stories and experiences with the conference and contributing to wider thinking about autism in the UK.
