Event description
Early Intervention Summit's 2021 Topic: The Value of Early Intervention for children with ASD from infancy to age 7 years By Dr Tony Attwood

About this event

The Sitting Room Maleny is thrilled to host Professor Tony Attwood as our Keynote speaker for our first Early Intervention Summit.

Dr Tony Attwood will be speaking on "The Value of Early Intervention for children with ASD from infancy to age 7 years".

We are also looking forward to an Interview with the Clinical Services Manager from Bushkids. If you're not sure who they are, in short, you have to go through them to access NDIS funding if you have a child under the age of 7. Bushkids will also be onsite all day to chat and help you with any questions you might have.

We're going to hear top tips from a Parent of Kids with ASD as well as have the chance to talk to local service providers, enjoy some great coffee and the beautiful part of the world that Maleny is! Oh! and a Sausage sizzle lunch is included in your ticket price as well as bottomless tea and coffee :)

For starters, here is some info on our Key Note Speaker:

He currently works in his own private practice, and is also adjunct professor at Griffith University, Queensland and senior consultant at the Minds and Hearts clinic in Brisbane. His book Asperger’s Syndrome – A Guide for Parents and Professionals has sold over 500,000 copies and has been translated into 27 languages. His subsequent book, The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome, published in October 2006 has sold over 300,000 copies and has been translated into 18 languages, and is one of the primary textbooks on Asperger’s syndrome, otherwise known as Autism Spectrum Disorder – Level 1. He has several subsequent books published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Future Horizons Inc. and Guilford Press on emotion management, relationships and sexuality, and general advice for autistic children and adults.

Tony has been invited to be a keynote speaker at many Australasian and International Conferences. He presents workshops and runs training courses for parents, professionals and individuals with Asperger's syndrome all over the world and is a prolific author of scientific papers and books on the subject.
