Benefits of attending

  • To listen to autistic people themselves and hear what they have to say about the support they need.
  • To listen to the families of autistic people more carefully in order to understand the autistic person.
  • To recognise that we are not the experts and we will only really know how to offer effective support if we learn to listen.
