Tweet about the conference: #MAHAutismToday21

Autism Today 2021 is a practical update for professionals working with autism spectrum conditions to discuss the current challenges and themes in autistic care. This meeting held in association with British Journal of Hospital Medicine & British Journal of Neuroscience nursing will provide you with practical ideas that you can apply straight into practice. 

The conference is CPD certified and will take place online over three days. There will be opportunity to network with presenters during live Q&A sessions as well as industry representatives during virtual exhibitions across all three days.

Registration will give you access to both the conference live stream and recordings of the presentations, which you can watch on-demand for up to three months after the conference. This means you will be able to watch the presentations at a time that suits you and earn CPD points remotely.

We hope that you will be able to join us to share your ideas and help advance the development of autism services in the UK.
