Events & Training
Scottish Autism is the leading provider of autism specific services across Scotland, and advocate of good autism practice.
Our vision is of a world where autistic people are understood and enabled to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives as valued members of the community. As part of this, Scottish Autism offers a number of innovative and highly personalised services for autistic individuals, while consistently working to raise standards of education, care, support and professional development.
We offer a wide range of events to support autistic people, their families, carers and professionals. Autistic people are at the heart of what we do (decision-making, policy work and campaigning). We also use our expertise to deliver autism training and a consultancy service for businesses and organisations who are committed to being inclusive and accessible to autistic people.
Scottish Autism Online Conference - Now Available On Demand
Behind the Mask: Autistic Experience & Professional Practice
Scottish Autism's Annual Conference was hosted as an online virtual conference on 12 May 2022. If you missed out but would like to access the conference you can do so via our On Demand Package.
Eventbrite bookings will change to our On Demand option only at 12 noon on 12th May.
On Demand will be available from 13th May 2022 and will expire on 12th November 2022. The duration in which you will have to view the conference will depend on when you book. No further bookings will be accepted from 12th October 2022 to allow 1 month viewing time. We will be unable to reissue or extend the On Demand link after this time.
This virtual 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 recognise the lived experience of autistic people; change practitioner behaviour 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.
