The annual Spectrum Space Symposium is a signature event for anyone with an interest in autism, its opportunities and challenges.

The Spectrum Space Symposium 2021 brings together individuals on the spectrum, family members, carers, allied health professionals, service providers, educators, and anyone with an interest in autism, its strengths and challenges, and provides an excellent opportunity to connect and network. For the first time, we’re taking this unique event on the road to bring inspiring speakers, including those with lived experience, to three regional locations in Western Australia. Presentations will include keynote and breakout sessions on a wide range of topics designed to inform, inspire and engage.

Keynote speakers include Andrew Whitehouse, Emma Goodall and Tom Tutton; as well as local lived experience. For more information about speakers and topics, please click the button on the right of this page. As the Symposium takes place during school hours in smaller communities, we are offering educators the option of attending for ½ day, to help with the challenge of sourcing and paying for relief teachers.
