WAiS at the 2018 ASID Conference

WAiS are proud to announce we will be presenting at the 2018 Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability Conference in November. This year, the conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, Queensland from Wednesday 14th November to Friday 16th November 2018.

This year’s Conference theme is Let’s Shake it up, human rights for everyone. The theme was chosen by a group of self-advocates and reflects their vision of a world in which human rights are truly extended to ALL people.

This theme extends a challenge and an invitation to come together as researchers, practitioners, service providers, governments, families and people with a lived experience of intellectual disability to debate, discuss and collaborate on better ways to make inclusion and equal rights a reality.

The Conference program strives to provide an innovative and inclusive space for participants to respond to this call for action through a range of exceptional keynote speakers, invited guests, concurrent papers and poster presentations.
