Middletown Centre for Autism Conference 2019



Applications to attend this conference were accepted between 14 January and 1 February.

Middletown Centre for Autism was established in 2007 by the Department of Education, Northern Ireland and the Department of Education and Skills, Ireland. The aim of the Centre is to promote best practice in the education of children and young people with autism throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Centre provides training, research, learning support and assessment and advice to parents, family members and educational professionals.

The Centre will hold its third two-day International Conference in City North Hotel & Conference Centre, Gormanston on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May 2019.


The theme for this year's conference will be Pathways to Resilience.

Application process

Demand for the conference is expected to exceed the capacity of the venue. For this reason, an application process is in operation.

All applicants should note that the Centre was established to provide supports to autistic children and young people, their parents and educational professionals. As such applications are considered primarily from these groups and the application form will reflect this.

The Centre is now accepting applications for tickets to the conference. Applications will be reviewed, with priority being given to parents of autistic children and young people with autism, autistic people and educational professionals currently working in a school setting. All applicants will receive acknowledgement of their application (please check your spam folder): - this is not confirmation of attendance. Applications will be reviewed and all applicants will be notified by the end of February if their application has been successful.

Successful applicants will then be directed to a formal booking site. A separate application must be made for each person wishing to attend.

If you are allocated a place, there is a non-refundable administration fee of £12 per day to attend.

Please note this event is open to people over 18 years.
