European Days of Autism

Each year, Autism-Europe organises the European Days of Autism in order to raise awareness of Autism across the European Union.

On this occasion, Autism-Europe gathers stakeholders for a high-level conference in order to discuss about specific issues linked to Autism and exchange knowledge and expertise at the European Union level. Events are also organised in various countries by Autism-Europe members in order to raise awareness at the national level.

European Days of Autism 2015

In 2015, Autism-Europe ran the campaign “Autism. Stop discrimination”, calling on European leaders to promote the inclusion of people with autism in all aspects of life. This call resulted in the adoption of a Written Declaration on autism thanks to the support of 418 members of the European Parliament. As an outcome, a conference was held in the European Parliament to discuss about a possible European Strategy for autism.

European Days of Autism 2014

In 2014, the European Days of Autism focused on access to vocational training and employment. In the framework of the Italian Presidency of the European Union, a conference will take place in Turin to share good practices from across Europe.

European Days of Autism 2012

In 2012, the European Days of Autism focused on autism and ageing. What are the specific needs of elderly people with autism? How can we plan ahead? How can we fund the services required? What best practices in ageing services exist today that can be built upon to create benchmarks for the future?
