Event description
This year's annual autism conference focuses on the importance of learning to listen to autistic people and their families.

About this Event

This complimentary event will bring together professionals, autistic individuals and advocates to learn about the importance of listening. The conference will take place on the 2nd April 2020 at Wyboston Lakes, Bedfordshire, MK44 3AL.

On the day, we are joined by our exciting presenters:

  • John Simpson – Autistic individual, who has worked as a support worker with autistic people
  • Pamela Hirsch – Talks about 70 years with Autism and what support has helped her
  • Sue Hatton – Accomplish Autism Advisor- touching on what is essential and the challenges behind Autism
  • Rachel Bragg – Learning to listen as a sibling and experience of being a service manager
  • Linda Woodcock – The importance of listening to parents

The benefits of attending this conference include:

  • To listen to autistic people themselves and hear what they have to say about the support they need.
  • To listen to the families of autistic people more carefully in order to understand the autistic person.
  • To recognise that we are not the experts and we will only really know how to offer effective support if we learn to listen.
