One of the primary mission of Autisme Montréal is the promotion and sensitisation of the different service providers and the general public of the needs of the people living with autism. To this end, we have organized a number of conferences with world-renowned experts in different fields related to autism. These conferences gave a chance to parents and professionnals to get a glimpse of the services offered in different regions and the different researches being done at the moment.
During the recent years, we have had the chance to get in-depth information on subjects such as: sexuality and autism, the increase in the cases of pervasive developmental disorders, visual strategies, Asperger’s Syndrome and many others.
