The first learning event presented entirely by autistic people for doctors and other health professionals is scheduled to be held in Stellenbosch from 7-9 September.

Our line-up includes an international speaker, as well as a full day of collaborative learning: here, professionals partner with autistic participants to gain insight into their concerns and to discover self-optimisation strategies which autistic people share amongst themselves.

We’ll be focusing on conditions common in autistic people and their families — conditions which often miss diagnosis, and therefore frequently go untreated while the focus is on managing behaviour.

Expect in-depth feedback on current research, as well as practical approaches used by autistic people to manage systemic health issues.

The seminar starts on a Friday, and ends with a networking and fun day on the Sunday for professional delegates, autistic people, and families with autistic children. The day closes with a spectactular lunch overlooking the vineyards.

In a few weeks, we’ll post information about the Autistic Health Seminar, including details about fees, topics and a link to book. In the meanwhile, feel free to pass on this link to others so that they can save the date!
