‘Towards a Positive Future’ is a conference which focuses on providing encouragement, information and hope for parents of, and professionals working with, children with needs. Attendance at the conference supports parents to take control, to share, inspire each other and make sure children with needs get the education and care they need and that will empower, enthuse and enable practitioners to be heard and shape the future.
At a time when the procedures for families of those with autism and other conditions are in a state of flux, it’s more important than ever for those affected to have access to information that will help them access the support services they need. This conference impressed me enormously with its range of speakers, and the professionalism and knowledge exhibited by them: I found it extremely interesting and was honoured to be a small part of the day. I am sure all those attending found it as informative and useful as I did.Jane Asher
