NAS Conference - Autism and anxiety


Thursday 1 February 2018, Bristol

Anxiety can be a challenge for many adults and children on the autism spectrum. It can have unsettling physical and psychological effects and can be very isolating. There are different causes for anxiety and people vary in how they react and cope with it.


This conference will help professionals develop their knowledge and understanding of anxiety and how best to support autistic adults and children experiencing mental health difficulties. It's also a great opportunity to hear from and network with experts in the field, to gain a wealth of knowledge, engage in debate and exchange new ideas. Please take a look to find out more.


The fee for autistic adults, parents and carers, who are paying for themselves, is £95 + VAT. Please note - there is an extension to the date for the early booking rate for the public sector and corporate rates!


As we were not in a position to publicise this earlier, the date for the early booking rate has been extended until the end of December.  This only applies to the public sector and corporate rates (not NAS member or parent/carer/individual rates)


To obtain this reduced rate of £195 + VAT, rather than £245 + VAT, you will need to input the code ANXIETYDEC17 in the discount code box, before the calculation for the order.  

Carers Trust, Carers Support Centre and BANES Carers’ Centre are hosting a campaigning workshop which will aim to help carers campaign on issues that matter to you on Tuesday 16 January 2018 from 10am - 2pm. Stirling Way Community Room in Keynsham, BS31 1DF.


Please take a look at this flyer for more information.
