London ExCeL, 17-18 June 2016
Birmingham NEC, 24-25 June 2016
Manchester EventCity, 1-2 July 2016
For the second year running, The Autism Show visited three locations - London, Birmingham and Manchester. The Autism Show is for the growing community of parents, carers, professionals and individuals on the autism spectrum who all too often don't know where to turn for answers. The shows in 2015 attracted over 10,000 people searching for the latest information, advice, and networking opportunities.
We were delighted to partner once again with The Autism Show to deliver the Autism Matters Theatre, a seminar programme featuring autistic speakers, researchers, practitioners, plus some high-profile figures.
