Autistic Intelligence presents:
with Adam Feinstein
What Works In
January 12th 2015
The British Library
96 Euston Road, London NW1
This is the third of our What Works In Autism conferences, based on our forthcoming collaborative book, following the first over-subscribed conference held in Glasgow with Tony Attwood, Michelle Garnett and Wendy Lawson, and the Leeds conference on October 10th 2014.
We are delighted to bring Tony Attwood back to London, where he last presented to a huge audience and rapturous applause in January 2013, at the Hotel Russell. This time Tony will be joined by Adam Feinstein, who provides web-base conferences for Autism Cymru. He's a life-long journalist, a linguist with a strong interest in the arts, and the author of The History of Autism. He is the parent of an autistic son.
We are also hugely grateful to have been offered the prestigious British Library as the venue for this important conference . We are certain that it will provide a stimulating and valuable setting for the latest work in progress from our ground-breaking book What Works in Autism?
Unlike at our last visit to London, the delegate fees for this conference include a light lunch provided by The British Library's caterers, Peyton and Byrne, that we hope you will enjoy.
All in all, this promises to be our most exciting conference to date.

What Works In
October 10th 2014
The Leeds Club
3 Albion Place, Leeds, LS1 6JL
This is the second of our What Works In Autism conferences, based on our forthcoming collaborative book, following the first over-subscribed conference held in Glasgow with Tony Attwood, Michelle Garnett and Wendy Lawson. We are holding this conference in the luxurious and historic setting of the Leeds Club, originally a 19th Century private members club for wealthy Leeds business people. At this Leeds conference we are delighted to welcome four of the most highly-qualified autism experts in the UK and beyond.
First, Dr Wendy Lawson has travelled to this conference from Australia, where she now lives, works, studies and lectures. Her PhD, which she'll explore in her presentation, is about the particular kind of learning style employed by those on the autism spectrum, and she'll give useful guidance as to how to get the very best from this highly-focussed style, that has its own particular strengths
Then there's Dr Luke Beardon, Senior Lecturer in Autism Studies at Sheffield Hallam University. Taking his evidence from a huge range of interviews with those on the autism spectrum that have formed the basis for his books and research, he'll speak about the social relationships of those with ASCs, and what they say is the best way to support their social skills, relationships, and socialising.
Dr Olga Bogdashina, born in Siberia but settled in the UK, has a PhD in Linguistics and one classically autistic son, and a daughter with Asperger traits. She is Programme Leader and Co-founder of the International Autism Institute KSPU. Her expertise lies in the understanding and management of sensory issues in autism, and is best placed to give guidance on what might work to alleviate sensory distress.
Dr Jacqui Jackson, the well-known author, researcher and scholar, is mother to eight children, most of them diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition, or one that commonly goes hand-in-hand with autism. Her unique and frank insights into caring for children on the spectrum with a huge range of autism conditions are invaluable in assessing what works in caring for those with diagnoses from classic autism and physical disability, to those with Asperger's Syndrome and AD/HD.
It promises to be a remarkable conference, ideally suited to a range of professionals looking to extend their CPD training, but also to parents of those on the autism spectrum, and to students, and those with ASCs. Our pricing structure benefits those on low, or no salaries, and we offer discounted rates for groups of four or more, or promotional codes. Our online ticketing service (below) gives you the opportunity to reserve your seat instantly. However, we can also allow payment by invoice if you email us at email@example.com or telephone on 07971 471617, and are prepared to adjust or terms for those trying to generate purchase orders over the bridge between financial years. This can allow you to buy tickets at the discounted Early Bird rate.
