Mondale Events and Leeds City Council are delighted to be organising this one-day Conference and Exhibition. Head teachers, SEN Co-ordinators and Intervention Managers are invited to attend this popular conference.
Taking place in a virtual environment, delegates will benefit from a blend of live and pre-recorded workshops covering subjects such as reading and phonics, how to be Ofsted ready, autism and understanding and meeting SEMH needs. All sessions will remain on the virtual platform for two weeks after the event allowing delegates to take full advantage of the skills and expertise on show.
We are delighted to be welcoming Alex Manners as our keynote speaker. Alex is an Asperger’s champion, a radio and TV presenter and an author (you may have seen him on The Undateables!). He will be sharing his story about his time at school and reflections on living with Covid and Asperger’s. Alex’s talk will offer an opportunity to reflect on how provision meets the needs of those whose strengths and difficulties can sometimes be masked or challenge our perceptions and practice.
The virtual platform provided by Mondale Events for this Conference will also include an exhibitors’ area where organisations are invited to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to promote their products and services to the target audience with advertisements, videos, interactive quizzes, prizes etc. Organisations and companies wishing to participate should please contact us as soon as possible for further details.

The cost per delegate for non SLA schools is £180.00. Schools, as appropriate, will be invoiced directly from leeds City Council following registration on this site.
As an Asperger’s Champion Alex will be reflecting on his time at school, the implications of the pandemic for those with Asperger’s and offer an opportunity to reflect on how provision meets the needs of those whose strengths and difficulties can sometimes be masked or challenge our perceptions and practice.
Alex in his own words: I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was 10 and consider myself lucky to have it as I believe it will be the catalyst that enables me to achieve my dreams. I have been interviewed a number of times on TV and Radio and have also written a number of articles for the Autism Parenting and SEN Magazines. I now present talks on what it is like to live, work and go to school with Asperger's and in 2019 I published my first book called "That's Not Right! My Life Living with Asperger's.
