To continue the drive for greater understanding and awareness surrounding learning disabilities, autism and neurodiversity, Open Forum Events invite you attend the Supporting Autistic People and People with a Learning Disability conference. This established well-respected meeting will bring together renowned experts, professionals, and advocates to share insights, information, and best practices to review appropriate supportive services and promote a more inclusive society.
Delegates will have the opportunity to learn from leading experts and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by individuals with learning disabilities and autistic people and the support needed to empower them to fully embrace their abilities and fulfil potential.
The conference agenda will feature a series of plenary presentations, delivered by expert speakers with both professional and personal experience. Interactive panels will encourage greater engagement and discussion, whilst informal networking sessions will foster knowledge sharing and the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees.
The Supporting Autistic People and People with a Learning Disability conference will once again deliver a unique opportunity to bring together a diverse community of professionals, educators, families, individuals with lived experiences and all other stakeholders with a collective commitment to induce change, enact improvements, and enrich lives.
This conference is designed to induce change with knowledge, innovation, and inspiration.

If your organisation supports change through your products and services, our delegates and conference participants will be ready to engage with you.
This presentation will give a personal case study perspective and how working collaboratively can bring about change.
