Where: Building 20 University of Wollongong Campus
Conference Dinner: Saturday Evening @ Wollongong Golf Club 6:30pm
This conference will focus on bringing together four groups: neurodivergent and autistic individuals, families, educators and service providers and researchers to explore perspectives on the environments, opportunities, actions and connections that foster a positive sense of lifelong identity, self-determination and belonging.
Through the conference we aim to provide a space and opportunity for respectful dialogue in order to develop shared understandings and collaborations to address current issues, barriers and priorities in the autistic and neurodivergent community.
Drawing on lived experience of autistic and neurodivergent individuals and their families will form a centrepoint for presentations and discussions across the two days. By also bringing in presenters with experience as professionals and researchers, we aim to map a shared vision that connects rather than divides us.
We have an awesome line up of Autistic and Neurodivergent Individuals and Family members as Keynote speakers including:
GRACE TAME, YENN PURKIS, MELANIE HEYWORTH, RANDA & RICHARD HABELRIH, TIM &
JUDY SHARPE and DR JAMES BEST & BENISON O’REILLY.
A designated conference website is currently under development
