Why is the conference Autism.The Route Choice important?
The 3rd International Scientific and Practical Conference Autism.The Route Choice will soon take place in The Moscow School of Management Skolkovo. Its objective is to create a place where the most important issues and challenges concerning support of people with ASD in Russia will be discussed.
Researchers, practitioners, rectors, authorities, parents of children with ASD, journalists, cultural influencers, and fellows in the sphere of NPOs will come together to talk to each other.
Why and for whom are these talks so important? And why do we still see so little progress in building a support system for people with ASD in Russia? Because all the changes in social sphere are only feasible, when all the stakeholders are in accord with each other and by ‘necessary changes’ mean the same actions. And lion’s share of time is spent on trying to agree on the what the changes should look like, not on carrying out these changes.
As wee see it, though some work is already done, it is obvious that there is still no agreement on all the matters concerning the creation of support system for people with ASD in Russia. The participants of The 3rd International Scientific and Practical Conference Autism.The Route Choice will discuss the basic unsolved problems. Who may serve as an expert when it comes to distributing resources for supporting children and adults with ASD? How should the practices and methods of intervention be selected? What can the strategy of the creation of the support system rely on? How can its effectiveness be measured?
Partner-ministries of the conference will present the reports, where their vision will be conveyed. Experts will share their scientific findings and practical experience. Heads of the organizations founded by parents of children with ASD will moderate the dialogue between the public authorities, scientists and practitioners. We invite all the concerned.
