Gillian Kearns – A Brief History of Radical Behaviourism and it’s Development
A brief overview of how ABA developed and it’s links to radical behaviourism. How and why it grew and why it is that so many Autistic adults are speaking out against it.
Kristy Forbes – Reimagining Autistic Family Culture Through the Lense of Radical Acceptance
Kristy is passionate about radical acceptance, and the profound need for a paradigm shift that moves us as a society from a perspective of autism as a medical disorder to an identity and a culture that is interwoven with pride, inherent and organic Autistic expression and intersectionality with our sibling communities such as the LGBTQIA+ community and many others. Join Kristy as she discusses how we can shift our perspective as families to begin practising integrating Autistic identity into our family culture and lifestyles.

Katie Kerley – Supporting Neurodivergent People to be their most Authentic Selves
How to ensure neuro-affirmative and person centred practice as a therapist to enable Neurodivergent people to live their best lives. We do this by identifying and meeting support needs, adapting the environment (physical, social, cultural and institutional), being trauma informed, honouring communication preferences, providing means and opportunities of communication suited to each individual, embracing all aspects of a person’s identity and following their lead when it comes to what brings meaning to their life.
Jay Jay Mudridge – Acceptance and Accommodation for Autistic Expression
Reframing Autistic behaviours through the lens of accommodation rather than behaviourism.
Cole Sorensen – Supporting Nonspeaking Autistic People through the Framework of Self-Determination
Behaviorist methods are commonplace when it comes to supporting nonspeaking autistic people in particular, but these methods can have significant negative consequences. This session will discuss alternative methods of supporting nonspeaking autistic people, both within AAC interventions and in a broader sense, through the framework of promoting autonomy, self-determination, and dignity of risk.
