Event description

Description

A new conference aimed at those with an interest in designing inclusive environments for education.


What’s your lasting memory of your own education?


For most of us, it will be about our teachers, playground antics or the lasting friends we make. For young people with autism, this can often be a very different experience.

As the national charity dedicated to children and young people with autism, Ambitious about Autism is passionate about providing the best possible education for those on the spectrum.

We know from our experiences developing Treehouse School and Ambitious College, that one of the key components is in ensuring that the building within which we operate is safe, flexible, fit for purpose, and truly inspiring for our young people. We’ve spent lots of time designing environments around the curriculum we want to offer, keeping them flexible and future proof.

This new conference, along with our partners who have worked with us along the way, hopes to share that learning to support others to make the biggest impact for as many children and young people as possible.


You can find a draft programme for the conference on Ambitious about Autism's website.
