Watch the on-demand webinar “I can LEARN. I can WORK”

On March 30 2021, prior to World Autism Awareness Day, Autism-Europe (AE)  hosted the webinar “I can LEARN. I can WORK”, as a part of its long-running awareness campaign 2020-2021. 

There have been many changes and challenges over the last year and, in order to better address the needs of the autism community at this time, AE has adapted its campaign to take into account the current situation. AE’s 2020-2021 awareness-raising campaign is titled “I can LEARN. I can WORK” and, in addition to access to education and employment, the campaign also addresses specific COVID-19 related topics including distance education, reasonable accommodation, mental health and pandemic related challenges.

Autistic people and their families, autism organisations, professionals, employers, EU policy-makers and the general population are called to make part of this collaborative event. The webinar also counts with a series of testimonials of autistic people and their families across Europe about their experiences with the above mentioned topics.

  • Total duration: 2 hours
  • Language of the webinar: English
