WHAT SOME OF OUR ATTENDEES HAVE TO SAY

They loved it. Read what the attendees had to say!

"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"  

Prof. Emer Ring, Dean of Education, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick
