The must-see event in 2017 for individuals on the autism spectrum, their family members, teachers, service providers, and researchers.

Looking at the ‘The Big Picture’, the 2017 Autism West Symposium looks beyond childhood as those on the autism spectrum move into adulthood, with a focus on individual strengths and challenges, transitioning to independence, meaningful employment and what that can look like.

Taking place across one and a half days in November 2017, the Autism West Symposium: ‘The Big Picture’, will feature a variety of autism experts from across Australia and internationally, including those with lived experience, employers, clinical practitioners, educators and inspirational speakers. This year we will also feature various employers championing the employment of those with ASD.
