We work on autism acceptance all year round. In these webinars, we showcase some of the recent work by EUCAP projects and volunteers, and invite guests to comment and to present on topics related to each of our themes. We start with autistic people’s experiences of violence. The second webinar introduces our new project on Artificial Intelligence and autistic people’s rights. In the third one, we talk about reaching out to our colleagues outside Europe. Next, we come back to our 2021 survey, from which we have some new results. Finally, we cover the recent survey on autistic people’s views on ABA.
Who is it for?
For autistic people, for autism professionals, researchers, students, family members and allies of autistic people.
Participants from any part of the world are welcome.
The information will be updated throughout the month.
