An Online Conference


ABA and its derivatives are extremely damaging to Autistic people. Research, as well as anecdotal evidence shows that ABA causes increased levels of PTSD and suicidal ideation in its victims. It also shows that it is ineffective and unhelpful to Autistic people.

Despite this mounting evidence and a general move away from ABA by many Neurodiversity-affirming professionals, ABA is still used in preschools, schools, clinics and other settings against Autistic people young and old. Our event not only highlights the dangers of using ABA but also provides you with Neuro-affirming and actually helpful advice from Autistic advocates and professionals from around the world. 

This  Conference will be delivered online over zoom.

Date & Time:  Sunday November 13th, 10am to 3.50pm Irish Time

Other Time Zones: AUS: 9pm-2.50am AEDT / US: 2-7.50am PST / Central Europe: 11am to 4.50pm GMT +1
