Distinguished Speakers in Autism Series 2017

The Sheffield Autism Research Lab are pleased to announce the future events in our "Distinguished Speakers in Autism" series. Our speakers are nationally and internationally recognised experts who will each give a public lecture on autism.

Each talk will last for about 1 hour, after which there will be an opportunity to meet other attendees and to talk informally with the speaker over tea/coffee. The seminars are intended to generate a forum in which people in the Sheffield area with an interest in autism can come together to share ideas, knowledge and experiences.

All lectures are free and open to all. Details of the scheduled seminars are given below. More dates and speakers will be added to this list so please keep checking. If you would like us to contact you with details of each seminar please sign up to our mailing list or e-mail sharl@sheffield.ac.uk
