It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the Aspect Autism in Education Conference to be held from 5 – 6 May 2016 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne.

In response to overwhelming support, the second Aspect Autism in Education Conference is being hosted in Melbourne. The education of students on the autism spectrum remains one of the major challenges across the education and community sectors. The conference is about more than formal schooling and what happens within educational settings today. It is about engaging learners for life; acknowledging that our focus for students extends beyond the school years into adulthood. The focus is on the realisation of potential, for our students and for the people we work with on the autism spectrum; a quality of life that we all strive to achieve.

Who will attend?

As a national Conference, it is expected that over 500 delegates with an interest in learning and education for people on the spectrum are expected to attend. This includes teachers, education consultants, early childhood educators, researchers and academics, Autism Support organisations, parents, carers… just to name a few.

Why you should be involved

The Aspect Autism in Education Conference will give your organisation the opportunity to network and engage with delegates and speakers attending from across Australia and overseas. Supporting the Conference will also provide the following benefits:

  • Increase exposure to target audience
  • Networking
  • Business Development
  • Brand Exposure
