We have been delighted by the response to our recent Transitions Survey and would like to thank all who completed the questionnaire. Feedback from this survey demonstrated that transition is an important topic for many of you and you are keen to discuss both good practice and challenges related to transition that you experience as practitioners working in the field of autism.

In response to your feedback, Autism Network Scotland have developed our next Learning Event:

TACKLING TRANSITION.

Date: 11 June 2013
Registration begins: 09.30. Event ends: 15.45.
Venue: University of Strathclyde, Lord Hope Building,
141 St James Road, Glasgow G4 0LT

Throughout the day we will consider the Agenda for Change document – Improving Transitions for Young People with Additional Support Need which has been developed by members of the Scottish Transitions Forum (run by ARC Scotland) to help young people and their carers to achieve positive outcomes through personalisation, independence, choice and control of their transition process.

We will also showcase a range of projects and organisations from across the country who support people with autism at key points of transition.

Refreshments will be provided but attendees should bring their own lunch or visit the cafe on the ground floor of the Lord Hope Building.

Please note there is no charge for this event. The 50 places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
