“I love spending time at the annual Spectrum Space Symposium and highly recommend that all parents and carers of those with autism and professionals working with people with autism attend this event.”
Karene Gibb, Kalgoorlie Boulder
We coordinate the annual Spectrum Space Symposium, the must-attend event for individuals on the autism spectrum, their family members, health professionals, educators, service providers, employers, researchers and anyone with an interest in autism. The Symposium is the only annual event of its kind in Australia and showcases local, national and international expert speakers, many with lived experience, exploring the opportunities and challenges for people with autism and those who work and live with them.
The Symposium provides a unique opportunity to bring the autism community together to listen, learn and network and although Spectrum Space made the difficult decision to cancel the Symposium in 2020, the good news for the autism community in regional Western Australia is that the event will be going on a road trip in May 2021 to three regional areas in Western Australia; Kalgoorlie, Geraldton and Bunbury.
Coming with us on our road trip is Andrew Whitehouse, Emma Goodall and Tom Tutton; and we’ll be drawing on local talent to talk about lived experience as well. More information about speakers and topics can be found by clicking on the location buttons on the right of this page. If you would like to get in touch about the event, contact firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to meeting you in 2021!
