Level 1- Practical understanding of Autism - 3 Sessions (For P & K HSCP Colleagues only)


Our training offers a sustainable and empowering approach for staff across many service areas. The sessions are practical in nature and although there is an element of understanding autism as a condition, we know that many of our colleagues are keen to learn to put this into practice. The training focusses on the most recent research on autism, our current thinking, understanding and approach of best practice and to ensure a strengths-based approach.

The outcomes of our training programmes are to:

1. Develop skills and confidence in staff to allow them to better support autistic individuals across the whole life span

2. To ensure that autistic individuals have access to a wide network of support that are all skilled in understanding and supporting autism

Our training programmes follow a three-part Theory – Practice – Evaluate approach.

Practical Understanding of Autism

Theory – Session 1 – We explore autism as a condition, our current thinking and approach and start to think about some of the strengths and differences in autistic individuals

Practice – Session 2 – Building on our theory from session 1, we start to think about how we move our knowledge in to practice and how best to use our understanding of autism when supporting autistic individuals

Evaluate – Session 3 – A chance to consolidate our learning to think about how we will practically implement change in our settings. We explore some of the potential barriers to implementing positive change and have an opportunity for some general discussion and Q&A with our facilitators.

All delegates will receive handouts for courses and follow up support via email.

Zoom links will be sent out nearer to the time of each session.
