Most people familiar with Axcis will know that we support the National Autistic Society, and have been doing so for a number of years now. In fact, we are their single biggest corporate sponsor and are thrilled to support many of their initiatives and events. On the 16, 17 and 18 September, we are a headline sponsor for Autism-Europe International Congress 2016 – one of the cornerstone events of the autism calendar. But what is great about this event and why are we sponsoring it? Find out here.
What is Autism-Europe International Congress?
Autism-Europe’s international congresses are dedicated to sharing advances in practical and scientific knowledge about autism to as wide an audience as possible, including researchers, professionals, parents and self-advocates.
The theme of the 2016 Congress is Happy, healthy and empowered. The Congress will focus on the most recent developments across the field of autism, including causes, genetics, diagnosis, early intervention, treatments, education, support, employment, rights and policies, and many more. It will also cover the evolution of knowledge, rights and services for autistic people, as well as providing insight into future developments in knowledge and technologies for autistic people that may soon become a part of everyday life.
We look forward to seeing you at the Congress on 16-18 September 2016 in the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh, where we will share the creative and innovative work being done across Europe and worldwide and work together to ensure that people with autism get to live the life they choose.
