Each year, in honor of global Autism Awareness Month, the Autism Society of West Africa hosts the Accra Autism Conference. In collaboration with our community partners, the 2016 Accra Autism Conference: Celebrating Neurodiversity in West Africa is the premier educational autism event in the region, each year providing the venue for evidence-based information, sharing best practices, celebrating success stories, and growing supportive connections within the community. This event welcomes all to attend, especially parents, healthcare professionals, therapists, administrators, educators, and people with autism. Throughout the three days, the conference will offer firsthand accounts of people working closely with those affected by autism, proving diverse and vital insights. Participants will also have the opportunities to join workshops and breakout discussion groups. This year, just as in the past, the 2016 Accra Autism Conference is guaranteed to be an invaluable experience for all!
