Autism brings both benefits and challenges to society. This conference aims to deliver a greater understanding of autism, drawing on both research findings and clinical experience. Our Keynote speaker, Professor Francesca Happé, will focus on perhaps the least well-known and understood aspects of autism; namely female presentation and co-morbidity.  Our three clinical presenters will demonstrate their experience through different therapeutic modalities and settings; Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Couples Work.
