I am very excited to be speaking at the Asia Pacific Autism Conference in September! This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with carers, service providers and individuals with autism and I am really looking forward to it.

I will be on two panels during the conference. The first will be looking at school transitions. I’ll be sharing our experiences and learnings from my son’s recent transition from mainstream primary to high school. The second will be looking at improving life experiences for autistic individuals, Here, I’ll be talking about how we’ve been able to travel as an autism family.

I look forward to meeting with fellow parents, learning from autistic self-advocates, getting up to date with latest research and networking with parents and providers. I hope to see you there!


Edited to add:

I presented two sessions at APAC 2017. The first session was titled Managing a Successful School Transition and shared the strategies we’ve used for four successful transitions (with another to go!) The second session was titled Travelling as an Autism Family and covered the ways we’ve been able to successfully travel with autistic family members (where we all enjoy ourselves!)
