Scottish Autism Online Conference

Thursday 12 May 2022

Scottish Autism Conference

The Scottish Autism conference will run online as a virtual event

The theme for the conference will be:

“Behind the Mask: Autistic Experience and Professional Practice”.

12 May 2022

Conference Information

The conference aims to understand the pressures, stresses and consequences that autistic people feel “fitting in”, and in accessing support. We will explore the ways that professionals can recognize the lived experience of autistic people; change practitioner behavior to better accommodate autistic needs; and create safe spaces where autistic people can be themselves.

We will ask how professionals and those they support can exchange perspectives through meaningful dialogue, promote respectful interactions and relations, and create a more positive experience of services and society more widely.
