What to Expect

Training

We offer training to organisations that have - or might have - autistic staff and/or clients.

Our training sessions are delivered from a lived experience perspective - some of our trainers are autistic, so they are experts through experience. It is important to understand that lived experience training is not clinical in nature; however, we believe it is the most relevant and valuable approach.

All out training sessions work best when delivered at your premises. We will carry out a brief initial assessment to understand attendees' needs and expectations. We will provide a presentation slide deck, video, and handouts in advance of the session and ask that you provide technical support before and on the day of the training to ensure everything runs smoothly.
