  • Dr Damian Milton: Stress, anxiety and the exclusion of autistic pupils.

  • Dr Karen Guldberg: How the TAE project facilitates the inclusion of autistic children in mainstream primary schools.

  • Dr Catriona Stewart: Cygnets to swans - supporting girls on the spectrum in the education setting from primary school on.

  • Barney Angliss: Exclusion in a European context and the role of teacher training in inclusive practices.

Musician and composer Anya Ustaszewski will present some of her own compositions. There will also be a display of original artwork by autistic children and adults.
