Altogether Autism announces programme for 2017 conference

Final keynote speakers and full conference programme announced

We're delighted to confirm the programme for the 2017 Altogether Autism Conference at Auckland Airport Holiday Inn, 19-20 July.

This year's line up offers a diverse range of speakers who will explore the theme of transition and supporting people on the spectrum as they navigate new challenges on the journey through life.

Our keynote speakers offer a mix of lived experience and professional expertise to provide information and strategies to generate successful and positive outcomes for individuals and families living with autism.

Psychologist Peter Dowrick will speak on the theory of 'feedforward' as a cognitive-behaviour principle of learning with advantages for autism.

Also presenting are Josh and Maria Man - an Asian/Kiwi/Australian sibling duo who will offer their unique insight and reflections on what it has been like dealing with life’s transitions, growing up with each other and ultimately living apart in different countries.

Visit the Altogether Autism website to learn more about our five keynote speakers, and take a look at our full conference programme.

Early-bird registrations for the Altogether Autism Conference will close 31 May, so don't hesitate to secure your place at this premier autism learning event.
