Event description
Behind the Mask: Autistic Experience and Professional Practice

About this event

The conference aims to understand the pressures, stresses and consequences that autistic people feel “fitting in”, and in accessing support. We will explore the ways that professionals can recognise the lived experience of autistic people; change practitioner behaviour to better accommodate autistic needs; and create safe spaces where autistic people can be themselves.

We will ask how professionals and those they support can exchange perspectives through meaningful dialogue, promote respectful interactions and relations, and create a more positive experience of services and society more widely.

Join our exciting line up of speakers including Broadcaster and Poet Kate Fox, Carly Jones, an autistic woman and campaigner of rights for autistic women and girls, Will Mandy, Clinical Psychologist and Professor at University College London, Founder of Dialogic Action CIC, Jonathan Drury, Andy McDonnell, Clinical Consultant Psychologist and Director of Studio III Clinical Services and Founder and CEO of AsIAm Ireland, Adam Harris.
