Inaugural autism in education conference

Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is delighted to announce the launch of the Aspect Autism in Education Conference to be held on 31 July – 1 August 2014 – the first national conference specifically focusing on improving outcomes for children and young people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in schools and further education.

The Conference will help to bridge the gap, putting evidence-informed programs into our classrooms for children and young people with ASD in the many educational environments across Australia.

With the theme ‘Translating the latest knowledge and evidence-informed practices into the classroom’, the Conference will further explore the topics of teaching and learning, adolescents, mental health and well being, family and community engagement and education across Australia.
