Dear partners in the autism community,
It is my absolute delight that Singapore will be the host country for the 2019 Asia Pacific Autism Conference (APAC).
This is the first time APAC is held outside Australia since its inception in 2009.
The conference theme - "Thriving with Autism" reflects our aspiration towards achieving quality of life for all persons with autism, their families and the professionals serving in the community.
This conference seeks to inform participants of the progress made internationally in the development opportunities and provisions for the autism community and to empower them with the knowledge and skills to help them thrive and be successful in life. We will also learn more about the latest in autism research and global best practices in the field.
Come join us on this exciting journey of sharing and learning!
