ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Conference Target

The conference target and subject is to inform and exchange information, research and best practices on autism and intellectual disabilities. It shall also enhance the awareness of autism in the Greater Bay area including Macau, Guangdong Province and Hong Kong. Additionally, we want to enable children and adults with autism and any kind of intellectual disability to develop their innate skills and self-esteem in an environment which is inclusive and supportive. The key word here is “enable”. We don’t try to fit square pegs into round holes. We just believe that everyone has abilities, a different ability and there is an extraordinary range of opportunities to show these. We invite the world to come to Macau and experience this unique event.

Education

Fortunately, local schools and universities are strongly involved, joining and hosting parts of the conference. Workshops were set up by the students, also taking responsibility towards people with autism and intellectual disabilities. The partnerships with educational institutes serve as an example of efforts made regarding inclusive education meeting our ideas. Besides proclaiming the policy that every student is given the appropriate support academically, emotionally and socially to become the best that they can be – teaching professionals and social workers are one of our main target group for case studies and skill enhancement.

Conference Audience

This conference is unique and the biggest of its kind in Asia. Besides professionals of the conference spectrum, we invite local students, teachers, associations, corporates, families and especially people with autism to learn and witness what autism means. Our desire is to enhance the awareness of autism and show it doesn’t mean the end of the world. We actively involve people with autism and any kind of intellectual disability, encouraging to speak up and show how they can also make a difference in live.

Families

Raising a child with autism or any kind of intellectual disability can be a rewarding, but daunting and exhausting task. There are many appointments to keep. The process of finding and funding the needed support services can easily overwhelm families. Family members must cope with the stress of witnessing their loved one’s daily struggles with self-care, social interactions, and education. Furthermore, family members live with the knowledge that there will be no end in sight for these struggles. Finally, family members must also face their own troubling emotional reactions. Grief, resentment, disappointment, and frustration are commonly experienced. But raising a child with autism brings its gifts along with its challenges. Therefore we invite families to share their experience in order to encourage others

Sport-Music-Art

Sport teaches essential values and skills including self-confidence, teamwork, communication, inclusion, education, respect and fair play neither requiring the necessity of speaking a certain language nor demanding characteristics such as skin colour or intellectual ability to perform it. Sport is just about connecting people disregarding any differing appearance or mindset. So does Art and Music help in communicating and expressing feelings, thoughts and fears but also hope and joy. With our wide variety of workshops – it’s the local community that opens up and makes the inclusion process work into the right direction.
