The ASD-EAST project is delighted to announce an online conference to share the project’s teacher education curriculum and training materials with specialists teachers across Europe. ASD-EAST partners have decided to host the conference virtually due to the current COVID-19 situation. The conference will be hosted on the ASD-EAST website by partner countries Belgium, Croatia, Poland and Republic of North Macedonia. The videos from the conference will remain available for attendees to access for three weeks from the 8th – 28th June.

The conference will:

  • Outline the teacher education curriculum and training materials developed by ASD-EAST
  • Explore the mapping report
  • Discuss the evaluation findings
  • Present the projects’ recommendations for policy makers
  • Provide information about the projects’ local partner trainings

We hope that you will join us for this event to hear about our findings and to have the opportunity to discuss issues with people who support children with autism in education. If you would like to join the online conference, please register here
