About the conference

Location: Leeds

Be inspired and learn from world-renowned experts

Autistic people commonly have one, or more, additional (or ‘co-occurring’) condition. These conditions may include ADHD, a learning disability, epilepsy, tourettes, dyspraxia, eating difficulties, and mental health issues. In this brand new one-day conference, we explore some of these co-occurring conditions, their connection with autism, what effect they can have on an individual, and how diagnosis and appropriate support should be approached. Speakers will include practitioners, researchers and autistic individuals.
