New technology to help children with Autism

Professional Conference 2014

Harrogate International Centre, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, London – 4-5 March, 2014

The Public is invited to the Professional Conference by the National Autistic Society.Times continue to be tough. Cutbacks are placing more and more pressure on professionals to deliver high quality services on ever-decreasing budgets.

We believe this conference addresses a critical need by providing information and strategies for improving the lives of people with autism and the services that we deliver to them.

Our experts on the Editorial Board have worked hard to develop yet another outstanding programme, drawing together examples of best practice across the different sectors. Keynote sessions given by top international speakers, including Professor Roy Richard Grinker and Professor Christopher Gillberg, will present an overview of the changing autism environment. Plus, our series of expert seminars will provide you with practical strategies to implement with your colleagues. Seminar topics at this year’s conference include:

  • intensive interaction
  • non-violent resistance
  • sleep problems
  • toilet training
  • using technology and iPads.

Personal perspectives will be shared by world-famous speaker Ros Blackburn and comedian and author of the My Son’s Not Rainman blog, John Williams.

I am also excited to announce that we’ll be hosting our Autism Professionals Awards again this year. You can read more about the awards and how to nominate a colleague, or your own team.

I hope that by providing this forum to share the creative and innovative work being done across the UK and worldwide, we can work together to improve delivery of services and ensure that people with autism get to live the life they choose.

Director of the Centre for Autism at The National Autistic Society and Chair of the Professional Conference Editorial Board.
