Effort put in to make autism conference inclusive
We thank Mr Dino Trakakis for his letter (Do more than talk to help disabled people; Oct 29).
He called on organisations that serve people with disabilities to walk the talk. He also commented on the fees and the organisers behind an upcoming major regional autism conference in 2019.
The co-organisers of the Asia Pacific Autism Conference (APAC) 2019, comprising the not-for-profit Autism Network Singapore, have made every effort to be inclusive.
The conference’s organising committee is represented by professionals, caregivers in their voluntary capacity, and individuals with autism.
The three-day conference, themed Thriving with Autism, will also feature a number of prominent speakers, many of whom are autism experts from around the globe.
The APAC conference is unlike others that the organisers have organised locally in terms of venue, slate of speakers and services to participants.
