Creating an Autism Friendly World
Date: Wednesday 8 July 2015, 9.00 am - 4.30 pm. Venue: London South Bank University, London, SE1 6LN (nearest tube Elephant & Castle)
The term 'autism - friendly' is used increasingly but what does it mean?
This conference will explore the concept of 'autism friendliness' and its importance, giving practical examples from research and practice on how this can be achieved. Highlights will include autistic perspectives and expert speakers from the world of architecture, education and higher education, employment, health and autism research.
The conference will be of interest to autistic people and their families and to all involved in their education and support. It will be of particular interest to regulators, retailers, architects and surveyors, health, education and higher education and social care professionals and those from advocacy, legal and the criminal justice system.
Attendees will be presented with research findings; gain insight through sharing of personal experiences, and be given the opportunity to put their questions forward to the experts.
