With its theme of Shaping Successful Futures the Aspect Autism in Education Conference will pick up where the last conference left off – with valuing students on the autism spectrum as unique and individual learners. The recent spotlight on the education of students on the spectrum in Australia has seen the development of a united voice and a shared common goal – the provision of the best possible educational support to every student, no matter where they may be on the autism spectrum, and no matter their educational setting. This conference aims to help achieve this goal and Shape Successful Futures for all students on the spectrum, by looking at the latest research, evidence-informed practice and listening to voices of our young people on the spectrum and their parents/carers.
We welcome submissions that address the four conference streams: capabilities, working together, innovation and approaches for learning, with a focus on utilising the strengths and interests of students to improve quality of life and post-school outcomes. You will need to select one of the streams as part of your submission.
