This two-day conference from the National Autistic Society explores the latest thinking from eminent speakers around supporting offenders with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

The 17th International Conference on Offenders with an Intellectual and/or Developmental Disability will be happening on the 11 and 12th April in Birmingham.

If you work with offenders with an intellectual and/or developmental disability, including autism, join us to discover the latest thinking from eminent international speakers. Our concurrent sessions offer you the chance to also learn from smaller scale research and innovations, choosing sessions that benefit your work. The conference also offers unparalleled networking opportunities for delegates from the UK and overseas.

For international delegates we offer a specially designed orientation day and a site visit to a secure service.
