Transitions for Children and Young People with Autism conference 2014

Holiday Inn City Centre, Birmingham – Thursday 16th January, 2014

A one-day conference helping to develop a greater understanding of transition, as well as providing professionals with practical approaches to support children and young adults on their journey through school and beyond.

Making the transition from early years up to higher education or employment can be one of the biggest changes we make in our lives.

How we make a transition can have a high impact on our future. This means it can cause significant anxiety and stress, especially to people with autism. However, with the right support and thorough planning, children and young adults can prepare for these changes and enjoy as smooth a transition as possible.

This one-day conference will help to develop a greater understanding of transitions. It will also provide various practical approaches for supporting children and young adults throughout the process. This event will be a great opportunity to hear from and network with experts in the field, to gain knowledge, engage in debate and exchange new ideas.

With three different seminar streams to choose from, delegates can select the seminars which are most relevant to their work.

Key topics include:

  • Transition from early years to primary school, and from primary to secondary school.
  • Different models of best practice for transition to adulthood and adult services.
  • Supporting people into and during employment.
  • Young people and their parents’ experiences of transition planning.
