This year marks the 52nd Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability (ASID) Conference. This year, the conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, Queensland from Wednesday 14th November to Friday 16th November 2018.

This year’s Conference theme is Let’s Shake it up, human rights for everyone. The theme was chosen by a group of self-advocates and reflects their vision of a world in which human rights are truly extended to ALL people.

This theme extends a challenge and an invitation to come together as researchers, practitioners, service providers, governments, families and people with a lived experience of intellectual disability to debate, discuss and collaborate on better ways to make inclusion and equal rights a reality.

The Conference program strives to provide an innovative and inclusive space for participants to respond to this call for action through a range of exceptional keynote speakers, invited guests, concurrent papers and poster presentations.

ASID conferences always have a strong focus on keeping the conversations flowing through a social program which provides the time and space to network, collaborate and stimulate the ideas and initiatives that enact change.

There are numerous sponsorship opportunities available, including participating in our trade stall display which always attracts a lot of interest and engagement from participants during breaks and the social program.

Or, you may just wish to attend the conference as a delegate and soak up all the program has to offer.

Whichever way you choose to participate, I strongly encourage you to join us for this call to action, to shake it up together!
