In 2019  we held a FREE event purely for parents and carers. This included autistic parents and carers who have autistic children and young people who do not have an associated learning disability.

This conference was autistic led and delivered by autistic adults. Our speakers on the day were: Matthew Rutherford, Sophie Everett, Isabel Hunt, Stephen Patterson and Kieran Rose.

Topics explored in the event were

  • The challenges that autistic children and young people face
  • How to best support autistic children and young people from childhood through to adulthood and beyond
  • The importance of (promoting) self-acceptance and self-awareness
  • The natural strengths of autism
