Strategy’s Annual Conference focuses on good autism practice

Categories: News

The Scottish Strategy for Autism Fourth Annual Conference will take place on December 8, 2015 at the University of StrathclydeTechnology and Innovation Centre in Glasgow. This year’s theme is good autism practice at strategic, service and individual levels.

Topics and presentations for the day include:

  • Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Sport, Health Improvement and Mental Health will give his perspective on the considerable progress the Scottish Strategy for Autism is making in improving quality of life for those with autism and their families
  • Good practice in local authorities across Scotland
  • Major initiatives that are transforming practice at key points in individuals’ lives (e.g. transitions, employment)
  • Workshops that showcase good practice
  • What some of the Autism Development Fund projects have achieved

This event is geared towards practitioners; however, a wide range of stakeholders have received invitations. We hope practitioners will make a special effort to come along and hear about the last year’s developments and progress on the Scottish Strategy for Autism. There will be many examples of good practice presented on the day and we hope these ideas will be taken away by those best positioned to implement them across Scotland.

If you are interested in attending the event and would like to join the waiting list, please email John Currie. We’ll notify you if there are still places available soon after the RSVP deadline of November 17.
