Aspect Autism in Education Conference

National Conference Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre 5-6 May 2016

In response to overwhelming support, the second Aspect Autism in Education Conference is being hosted in Melbourne.

The education of students on the autism spectrum remains one of the major challenges across the education and community sectors so, this conference is perhaps more crucial than the inaugural event in 2014. Many of the program topics and research will be presented for the first time, revealing the latest evidence, findings and applications in the classroom.

This conference will help to bridge the gap between research and practice – putting evidence-informed programs into our classrooms and schoolyards to provide the best possible outcomes for children and young people on the autism spectrum across Australia.

More than 100 national and international speakers will present across a range of topics during oral presentations, lightning talks, posters, model class demonstrations, optional pre-conference masterclasses and through an exciting creative program to showcase innovation in schools.

The Aspect Autism in Education Conference offers an exciting opportunity for you to connect with others interested in learning and education for people on the spectrum.
This innovative two-day event at Melbourne’s premier conference venue will bring together teachers, teachers’ aides, school leaders, early childhood educators, allied health professionals, researchers, academics, disability providers, policy makers and others.

Delegates will be particularly excited to hear the voices of students, young people and adults on the spectrum about their own education, and those of their families and communities.

A range of flexible pricing options are available to secure your place at the conference. Early bird rates have been extended until 31 March 2016.
