The Autism in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Community symposium organised by Autism Voice United Kingdom offers a timely opportunity for key stakeholders in the services of autism to renew commitment for raising awareness about autism, assess progress, identify gaps, address new and emerging autism challenges in the BAME community.
The two themes that will provide a focus of the symposium are: Diverse approach to Autism: culture, religion and ethnicity and Paving the future for Autism in BAME.
The symposium will be an effective means of raising awareness about autism and inclusion of people with special needs within the BAME community.
The symposium will also present an excellent opportunity for members of the business, academic, local, special needs community to share knowledge, responsibilities and take vital action.
Keynote Speaker is Dr Chris Papadopoulos, principal lecturer in Public Health at the University of Bedfordshire.
Autism Consultant Dr Damian Milton will serve as chair of the symposium.
