"I really loved the wide variety of speakers at the 2018 Cork Autism Conference. The Speech and Language advice was extremely practical for both parents and professionals. It was intriguing to hear about Robyn Steward's experiences in the educational system and life in general! I will definitely be attending the 2019 Cork Autism Conference. I recommend it 100% to anyone interested in the area of autism."- Fleur Dunphy, Behaviour Therapist, Cork

"Dr. Beardon’s talk was very insightful and I obtained some new skills listening to Julie O'Sullivan to help me in working with those I support. Robyn Steward inspired me to encourage and support those with autism to improve their self esteem and be the best they can be. I would recommend this conference to others I work with."
- Rosemarie Dempsey, RT Instructior, Coaction West Cork

"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. It has taught me that there is hope. They talked about ways around their difficulties.

I learned to listen, to see the world from the person with autism’s perspective and that continuity with therapists matters greatly. 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

"The Cork Autism Conference was the best conference I attended in the area of autism for a very long time. I gained a more in depth understanding of the challenges families and children with autism face and the possibilities there are to turn these challenges into the opportunities and make society a more enriched, inclusive, diverse and equitable place to live.

The Conference provided me with a much-needed opportunity to gain insights, wisdom and tools that will make the lives of those with autism and their families so much better. The solution-focused approach and celebration of autism as a difference that enriches all of our lives, is the reason I am returning again this year" - Dr. Emer Ring, Head of Department of Reflective Pedagogy and Early Childhood Studies, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick and co-editor of Autism from the Inside Out; A Handbook for Parents, Early Childhood, Primary, Post-Primary and Special School Settings

"I found the conference beneficial, practical and inspiring on so many levels. The speakers spoke across a range of highly relevant aspects of autism providing many useful practical tools 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. It was an enormously beneficial use of my time in spending a day at such an excellent event." - Avril Quinn, Parent, HR Consultant

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