Course content

Our course is suitable for anyone, including people with autism, who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in understanding autism. Driven by lived experience of people on the autism spectrum, we will help you gain a better consideration of how to work alongside autistic people.

We offer an individual negotiated pathway to ensure the course is appropriate to your personal and professional development. There is a minimum attendance requirement of 85% of all thought sessions within the first three modules.

Professionals consistently argue that widespread knowledge and understanding of autism and better access to training will help fight the ignorance towards those on the autism spectrum. We intend to give you the relevant training and knowledge to ensure that you have the abilities necessary for effectively working with autistic people, giving you the right skills to ensure a successful future.
