“Innovation in Autism Practice: The Future is Calling”, 8th – 9th November 2018, Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow.
Call For Papers
As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations we are holding a two day conference which aims to provide a platform for sharing visionary approaches to the development of autism practice.
Our programme will be influenced and informed by a contemporary view that embraces autism as a developmental difference and focuses on a capacity view of the individual. Day one will centre around the culture and context of practice and day two will look at innovation in practice.
We want to engage with others who share our ambition to promote practice based evidence and recognise the value of the lived experience of autistic people. We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for an oral or poster submission on the following topics:
- Innovative service design and delivery
- Participation – valuing the lived experience of autistic people
- Enabling voice and choice
- Research to practice – models of support that have been informed by research or evaluation
- Communities of practice that support the development of good autism practice
- New perspectives on the use of evidence within autism research
By clicking on the link below you will be invited to create an account and submit your oral or poster submission. Click here for Submission Guidelines and Poster Guidelines.
Deadline for submissions is Friday 30 March.
Any enquiries should be directed to Charlene Tait, Director of Autism Practice and Research at firstname.lastname@example.org

The PARC West Midlands convenors are organising three more workshops on Autism, Identity and Violence. The focus of these workshops has been decided on the conversations that took place on the first workshop and are going to focus on Sexuality, Institutionalised Violence and Gender Identity. We are hoping to have local autistic speakers to present on those topics from personal experience and we hope that they are going to spark some very interesting discussions. The workshops are going to take place monthly and they are going to be held at the School of Education. You can find more information about them in the attachment and register for them using the links below:
Talk one: Luke Shorrick, Talk two: Gill Loomes
We hope you can join us in any of these workshops and we look forward to seeing you there!
