Autism awareness training packages
Are you an organisation or community group looking to raise your team’s awareness of autism, broadly or around a specific area? We offer a bespoke training package that is centred around the current needs of your organisation.
- We can deliver training that specifically explores any issues or difficulties that you are experiencing as a team.
- We will come to you and provide individualised training sessions around topics such as reasonable adjustments, community work, sensory issues and more.
Over the past few decades we have developed a comprehensive autism training programme that not only details theory but more importantly includes methods of best practice when working with people with autism of all abilities.
These sessions are continually reviewed in light of the latest theories and as we continue to learn from the people we support.
Some of the topics include diagnosis, the history of the condition, behaviours, educational support, reasonable adjustment, role-play, progression and working in the community.
Some of the covered topics
Outlining history and background to the condition, establish current criteria and diagnosis methods in the region. Statistics, facts and figures relating to prevalence and dual diagnosis, up to date with the Autism Act and current National Autism Strategy.
Practical exercises looking at the language based around the condition and what might be the symptoms associated with each aspect.
Advice about working with someone who has a diagnosis of ASC for the first time. How to work more effectively with them, and methods for continued support.
What might we expect? How can they be managed and why do they occur? Strategies for the outside world.
