Why choose us?
Why choose us?
Our trainers have the vital combination of practical and academic experience. They know the latest autism research – and contribute to academic journals. They also have extensive experience of autism. All of our trainers can draw on a range of professional and personal experiences to reinforce the training messages.
Our trainers are part of a major UK autism charity with a strong emphasis on practical service delivery. We operate six residential homes and a range of other activities, including support into employment. We are experts in managing challenging behaviour, individual communication systems and meeting sensory needs. The people we support show reduced anxiety and are able to take greater control over their own lives.
Our staff trains health professionals in dealing with autism. We also have close links with clinicians, academics, speech and language therapists and specialists in psychology and psychiatry.
Where possible, we involve people with autism in the delivery of our training. Listening to someone with autism talk about their experiences can be a revelation to their audience and make autism become "real" to them.
By using our training, you can be confident that you will be receiving expert, practical advice, and knowledge-based strategies which you can employ in the workplace.
