Training & Events Conferences Life Chances Conference Booking is now closed for this event. What is The Life Chances Conference? At Autism Anglia, we are extremely proud to be bringing together ten fantastic speakers with a shared belief that people on the autism spectrum deserve the same life chances as their peers. We currently live in a country where 17% of autistic children have been suspended from school, 70% of adults on the autism spectrum say that they are not getting the help they need from social services and just 16% of autistic adults are in full-time employment (Reid, B. 2011). The Life Chances Conference will focus on attitudes towards neurodiversity and how best to support people on the autism spectrum. Esteemed professionals and autistic individuals will share research and ideas on continuing to develop a society where people on the autism spectrum are valued, supported and celebrated as integral members of a diverse world, from childhood through to older age. Who is this conference for? Academics Education Professionals Healthcare Professionals Local Authority Professionals Police Service Industry Workers Social Workers Support Workers Any other professionals working with people on the autism spectrum For full details of workshops and speakers please click here.
