Responding effectively to behaviour that can be challenging remains a big concern for professionals. It is important for early intervention and planning to ensure that situations don’t escalate to a point where physical intervention seems to be the only option.


This conference is a must for all professionals working with autism.


Attend to:

  • hear about the latest research from experts in the field
  • understand the causes of challenging behaviours and how to reduce potential triggers
  • learn practical strategies for recognising early warning signs and making positive interventions
  • network with other professionals.


Who should attend?

  • Education professionals from mainstream schools, special schools and local authorities.
  • Clinicians across the professional field, including psychiatrists, psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and GPs.
  • Social workers and support workers.
  • Voluntary sector groups and not-for-profit organisations.
  • Individuals with autism and their parents and families.


Along with remarkable keynote presentations discussing holistic approaches to supporting people with autism and positive behaviour support approaches, the conference will feature three streams of interactive seminars: adult services, family support and schools. The seminars will focus on key issues such as physical restraint, challenging behaviour in schools, using play-based approaches, sleeping difficulties, and toileting difficulties and the impact on behaviour.


This event is a great opportunity to hear and network with acknowledged experts in the field and to gain a wealth of knowledge, engage in debate and exchange new ideas.


Axcis representative Helena looks forward to meeting you at the conference.
