Assistive Technology Industries Conference (ATIA):

January / February 2021:


SPECIAL EVENT:  Thursday, 12 November 2020, 10h00 – 15h00 UTC/IST/GMT

A very moving, informative and entertaining online conference commemorating the life and work of the late, great autism specialist, Theo Peeters.
Theo changed the way we think about autism.
Profoundly compassionate, he emphasised the importance of understanding people on the autism spectrum ‘from within’: the need to empathise with autistic people by recognising the ‘culture of autism’.

Adam Feinstein will be speaking, together with Rita Jordan and Hilde de Clercq,
about their friendship with Theo and his immense influence in understanding and educating autistic individuals.
