This year’s programme includes presentations on subjects such as: navigating the SEN system; reducing the impact of sensory challenges in a practical way; home based routines to help your autistic child with daily life and to learn new skills; supporting children with autism in a mainstream classroom using a holistic approach, underpinned by behaviour analysis; and creating welcoming environments for autistic girls.
The Hub: Theatre 2 has a seating capacity of 80 and sound is relayed to the audience through wireless headsets to reduce noise levels in the hall.
