Please Note: The Aspect Research Centre for Autism Practice (ARCAP) Conference 2020 is postponed until 2021. We will keep delegates, speakers and other stakeholders informed of any further updates.
We have made the decision to postpone the Aspect Research Centre for Autism Practice (ARCAP) Conference 2020 until 2021, amid ongoing concerns over the COVID-19.
While we are very disappointed, the decision to postpone is necessary for the protection of the community and to help reduce transmission of the virus. We all need to pull together at this difficult time and help ‘flatten the curve’.
Once this period of caution and containment is over, we sincerely hope you can join us at our rescheduled conference next year once dates are confirmed.
We look forward to sharing with you the innovative research practices for supporting people on the autism spectrum and their families and carers.
For more information on the virus and the steps that can be taken to minimise its impact, visit the Australian Government Department of Health website.
We will keep delegates, speakers and other stakeholders informed of any further updates.
This is the inaugural ARCAP Conference, however research at Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is not new.
Aspect’s research centre – ARCAP – was launched in May 2019 to undertake and promote research into autism practice. Built on more than 20 years of research expertise and guided by the experiences of autistic people and practitioners, ARCAP conducts participatory research that is translated into respectful practices that support autistic people and their families and carers to realise their goals and aspirations.
