New Year, New Plans

As we get into our stride with the new year, plans are continuing for the next stages of the project. Both the Greek and the Italian teams are busy piloting their training materials and the initial feedback from practitioners has been very encouraging. Meanwhile, arrangements are being finalised for the next transnational meeting in Italy in February 2016, an important event which enables team members from the UK, Italy and Greece to get together, to share and disseminate ideas and lay the foundations for the next steps of the scheme.

Our focus is also on preparing proposals for two key conferences in the academic calendar: the European Conference on Educational Research in Dublin in August and the Autism Europe International Congress in Edinburgh in September. These will provide essential opportunities for the initial findings of the project to be both tested and shared, as well as to engage with other educational researchers and the broader autism community. Not only this, but worthwhile reasons to visit two wonderful cities!
