Call for Submissions

Friends House, Euston, London – 28th January, 2014

The National Autistic Society is inviting people on the autism spectrum to submit an abstract regarding a proposed presentation or workshop for their upcoming Ask autism conference. The theme of the conference is ‘participation’.

The conference will be looking at a variety of aspects of participation by people on the autism spectrum, including areas such as:

  • working in participation with people on the autism spectrum who have less verbal ability or are non-verbal
  • best practice for participation and consultation in the commissioning of services
  • what is meant by inclusion in schools and colleges for students on the autism spectrum
  • how political representation for people on the autism spectrum would be best achieved.

This list is just some suggestions of what we are hoping to cover at the conference and submissions on other aspects of participation and autism will be accepted for review.

Not all submissions will be accepted, but there may be other ways in which those interested may be able to contribute to the conference.

We are also looking to exhibit artwork and poster presentations regarding the theme of ‘participation’. If you are interested in submitting a piece of work of this nature for either the conference or the e-book, please contact the Ask autism team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We will also be compiling an e-book through contributions on the same theme, which we are hoping to publish in mid-2014. Upon submission of your abstract, please indicate whether you wish to submit for the conference, the e-book, or both.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 22 November 2013.
