It is tailored for individuals who want to increase their awareness of autism, understanding autism spectrum, and enhance their ability to create supportive environments for autistic individuals. Presented in simple language, this autism training aims to dispel myths, explore lived experiences, and boost confidence in supporting autistic people.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability affecting how people communicate and interact with the world. One in around 100 people are believed to have autism, meaning there are approximately 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK.

Improve Practice and Confidence in Supporting Autistic People
The ultimate goal of this autism awareness course is to enhance participants’ practice and confidence in supporting autistic individuals. By integrating the knowledge gained throughout the course, participants will be better equipped to engage with autistic individuals in a way that respects their uniqueness and fosters positive interactions.

Our training adopts a straightforward and inclusive approach, ensuring that complex concepts are explained in a way that is accessible to all.
