Scottish Autism's Annual Conference was hosted as an online virtual conference on 12th May 2022. If you missed out but would like to access the conference you can do so via our On Demand Package.
Behind the Mask: Autistic Experience and Professional Practice
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 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.
