WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Hearing from the perspective of adults with Autism reflecting upon their experiences really helped to see it from their viewpoint.

Despite doing previous courses on autism this training helped me widen my knowledge in which I can implement in my day to day activities within 

School life

I have learned many techniques and practices that I can use with my 1:1 child - particularly the use of visual cues and timetables

Thank you all!

This training has been really insightful and will definitely take lots of this information away!

Great content and real examples

Learning about why children may be behaving in a certain way and how important building relationships are was incredibly useful
