Don't miss out on this very SPECIAL conference.

"I loved the Cork Autism Conference because it was practical, very positive and there was a great variety of speakers. I learned so much that day, especially listening to people who have autism. That was the crucial bit for me. You have to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Deirdre Lynch, was brilliant – so positive, and honest. She has degrees and a house in Spain.. and had been non-verbal for years. This taught me that there is hope. I adored Michael Barton’s talk too. Like Deirdre Lynch, another positive role model. He has a real job and a full life. He was very funny too. He talked about ways around his difficulties , and how his outside interests were the making of him- music, cars, judo. And he even ended his talk by playing the spoons. I laughed a lot and I never thought that I would be laughing at an autism conference...............As a result of attending this conference, I learned to listen, to see the world from the child’s perspective and that continuity with therapists matters greatly. Many therapists said that they had the same kids for one to one sessions for years and they saw them blossom. I would definitely recommend people to attend this Cork Autism Conference. I have told all the parents I met on HSE courses that it is a very intense day but time and money very well spent. It was very inspiring and it gave me hope. It was well worth the trek from Dublin and I have already booked for this year." - Ciara Dwyer, Parent and Sunday Independent Journalist

"I attended the 2017 Cork Autism Conference and found it beneficial, practical and inspiring on so many levels. The Speakers spoke across a range of highly relevant aspects of ASD providing many useful tips and instilling hope across the audience.... From a personal and a professional point of view I will certainly be able to apply some of the key learnings from the day itself, an enormously beneficial use of time in spending a day at such an excellent event." - Avril Quinn, Parent, HR Consultant

"Well done to all involved in the 2017 Cork Autism Conference. Speakers were excellent. Knowledge is power. Lots of excellent ideas given, to empower me to help my son." - Marie Looney, Cork Autism Conference 2017 Delegate

"An inspiring and thought provoking day! Thank you!" - Lisa Kirby, Cork Autism Conference 2017 Delegate
