Speed Dating Meets Supported Employment
ABLE was set-up in 2009 in response to a lack of specific services for young people and adults on the autism spectrum and because of an increase in the number of referrals of people on the autism spectrum.
Speed dating will meet supported employment at an innovative event taking place on the opening day of the conference.
Deputy Simon Harris TD will be the master of ceremonies for the event.
A range of topics will be introduced by 10 speakers in a speed dating style format.
Numbers at the event are limited to 150 delegates.
