Autism Open Day draws a big crowd
Approximately 400 people attended the Autism Open Day, an annual event jointly organised by Curtin Autism Research Group and Telethon Kids Institute. The event was officially open by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Deborah Terry, with keynote talks by Professor Lyn Beazley (AO), former Chief Scientist of Australia, AASWA Ambassador, Miss Tori Haar, an autistic adult, and Professor Patricia Howlin, Emeritus Professor King’s College London.
More than 20 researchers presented their research in autism, with another 20 manning research booths. There was a buzz in the air along with the smell of sizzling sausages. It was an exciting day and a wonderful opportunity to share our research with the community. Thank you to everyone who helped to make it a success. We look forward to planning another eventful day next year, which is likely to be on the 10 September 2017.
