Filmed presentations from XI Autism-Europe Congress

The XI Autism-Europe Congress took place in Edinburgh this year, hosted by the National Autistic Society and with headline sponsors Axcis Education. 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 was Happy, Healthy and Empowered and it featured presentations on topics such as diagnosis, early intervention, employment and rights and services for autistic people. All the plenary presentations and panel discussions from the main auditorium were filmed and we’re delighted to link to these videos below.

We have collated all the available presentations from the plenary and workshops sessions and you will also find the abstracts of all the presentations on the Autism Europe website.
