Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce that the AsIAm National Autism Conference will be held on Saturday 21st October 2017 in The Grand Hotel, Malahide, Co. Dublin

This year, our theme is “Expectations”. In the course of our work we are promoting a society where every Autistic person has the opportunity to participate in all aspects of Irish life and to hold the same expectations of reaching our personal potential as anyone else.

We believe it is critical that we explore: what are reasonable expectations – in education, in community participation and in employment and adult life? Where are these expectations not being met presently and how can we meet them? How can we raise expectations and outlooks within our community?

These are important questions – how they are answered and what approaches are taken in response to these questions, will shape the outlook of every single Autistic person.

At “Expectations” we will challenges perceptions, highlight best practice and provide practical information on all aspects of life with Autism.
