About Reframing Autism events

Reframing Autism runs a range of events for different audiences, including Autistic adults, parents of Autistic children, and professionals working with Autistic individuals and their families. See our upcoming events below.


Terminology guide

We’re proud to offer a range of event types, and aim to cater to a range of learning styles.

Some of the event types we offer include: 

Masterclasses: Specialised events on specific (focused) topics. In masterclasses, subject matter experts share their knowledge with attendees via a formal presentation. There may or may not be time for discussion and questions, and the focus of the masterclass is to learn from those with a deep expertise in that topic. Masterclasses assume a solid level of knowledge about Autism from a neuro-affirming perspective, and are not suitable as an introduction to Autism broadly.

Community Workshops: Interactive, educational sessions about practical topics impacting day-to-day life. In workshops a facilitator or panel will share their lived experience in a variety of possible ways, including a presentation, activities, reflections, and skills application. Workshops are usually less formal, with more possibility to discuss and ask questions.

Mentoring Groups: A guided discussion led my one or more mentors, also called facilitators. The mentor/s will guide a discussion among several mentees. Rather than discussing the individual goals of a single person, the discussions are generally collaborative and focus on the common goals among all attendees.

Symposium Events: A conference-like event, focused around a single topic. Our symposia gather researchers, innovators and experts in their field to discuss the topic at hand, in a conversational and collaborative manner (often including panel Q&A sessions). Symposia are announced annually.

All of our learning offerings are delivered online and these include workshops, masterclasses, professional development, facilitated courses, self-study courses, conferences and symposia. Some of our offerings are on-demand while others have a live element with an associated replay. You can learn more about our types of learning here.

Financial assistance

We believe that members of the Autistic community and its supporters should have access to our learning material and events. If you wish to access an event but are experiencing financial hardship, please feel welcome to email us at info@reframingautism.org.au so that we can assist you.

Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

The Reframing Autism team would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we have the privilege to learn, work, and grow. Whilst we gather on many different parts of this Country, the RA team walk on the land of the Amangu, Awabakal, Bindjareb, Birpai, Whadjak, Wiradjuri and Yugambeh peoples.

We are committed to honouring the rich culture of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this Country, and the diversity and learning opportunities with which they provide us. We extend our gratitude and respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and to all Elders past and present, for their wisdom, their resilience, and for helping this Country to heal.

Join us on the journey to reframe how society understands Autism
