Open Forum Events are hosting The 7th Learning Disabilities and Autism: Promoting Positive Outcomes Conference. This conference will be concentrating on the support and services that are essential for people to thrive. Individuals with learning disabilities and/or autism have the same basic rights to receive equity in areas such as healthcare, independent living, employment opportunities and accommodation. Removing the barriers and providing adequate provision is essential.

With soundbites from the government on future social care and the NHS pledging to make learning disabilities and/or autism a ‘national priority’ in their upcoming 10-year plan, this conference will be concentrating on the support and services that are essential for people to thrive. Individuals with learning disabilities and/or autism have the same basic rights to receive equity in areas such as healthcare, independent living, employment opportunities and accommodation. Removing the barriers and providing adequate provision is essential.

Discussion areas will include:

  • Meeting future needs
  • Support provision and initiatives already in place and fulfilling a role
  • Examples of best-case practice

Delegates will:

  • Hear how people with learning disabilities can be supported to maximise their life chances and fulfil their true potential
  • Learn how the transformation of services and the support provided is allowing for greater opportunities to self-advocate and make choices
  • Gain insight into how the rights of people with learning disabilities can be defended and upheld
  • Understand how the issues of healthcare inequalities can be addressed and the same level of protection is assured as experienced by the rest of the population
  • Gain knowledge of the steps needed to be taken to co-ordinate care, support and treat children and young people with complex needs (and behaviour that challenges), also involving mental health problems and learning disabilities and/or autism.
