Stellenbosch, South Africa
The first learning event for health professionals presented exclusively by autists
The seminar includes collaborative learning sessions, where professionals partner with autistic participants to gain insight into their concerns and to discover self-optimisation strategies which autistic people share among 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 into genetics and ion channel diseases, 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.
