As a society we make judgements about people on a daily basis, this can be both personally and professionally and will impact either positively or negatively upon those individuals. Children, young people, adults and the elderly with Autism have judgements made about them frequently, but what is the impact of those judgements, and how do they shape their lives and the society that we live in?
Some 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum but just 15% of autistic adults are in full-time employment. Scientific understanding of the condition has greatly increased in recent years but misconceptions and assumptions in wider society mean those living with autism are often left marginalised. England has fallen behind other countries when it comes to diagnosing and managing autism. The average diagnosis time for children in England is three and a half years, but research has shown that detecting the condition earlier could cut costs of caring for people with autism by up to two thirds.
Join us for the Autism Conference where expert speakers will examine the role different agencies have to play in creating a more Autism Friendly environment. The event, organised to coincide with Autism Awareness Week, will examine the way autistic people are treated both personally and professionally and how these attitudes can shape their lives.
