12th Autism-Europe International Congress
Every three years, Autism-Europe organises an International Congress in cooperation with a member organisation.
Autism-Europe’s international congresses are dedicated to sharing advances in the practical and scientific knowledge of autism to as wide an audience as possible, including autistic people, researchers, professionals and parents.
Our International Congresses bring together a wide range of stakeholders in order to share knowledge about the latest research and best practices in the field of autism.
On the occasion of this three-day event people from all over the world will come together to share the most recent developments across the field of autism. The congress will address a wide range of issues, including: diagnostic and assessment, language and communication, access to education, employment, research and ethics, gender and sexuality, inclusion and community living, mental and physical health, interventions, strategic planning and coordination of services as well as rights and participation.
Autism-Europe (AE) is an international association whose main objective is to advance the rights of people with autism and to help them improve their quality of life. AE advocates towards European decision-makers to foster a better policy response to the needs of autistic people. AE also strives for more awareness and understanding of autism in society.
