Autism Cymru, Wales' National Charity for Autism and Trinity Fields School and Resource Centre have joined forces to present a three day TEACCH conference in Rhondda Cynon Taff with Professor Gary Mesibov, Director of Division TEACCH to familiarise professionals with the TEACCH approach to autism.

The conference is designed for all professionals working with children with an autistic spectrum disorder including teachers, social care workers, speech and language therapists, psychologists, learning support staff and many others.

The course, which is non-residential, includes am/pm tea-coffee and a light lunch.
