Autism Awareness Training takes participants through an introduction to autism, allowing individuals who have little experience or no formal accredited training the opportunity to learn about autism.
The training will be delivered by Autism East Midlands and is aimed at anyone wanting an introductory awareness of the autism spectrum.
Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of:
- The origins of autism and the autism spectrum
- Current thinking around diagnosis and prevalence
- Communication and information processing
- Social understanding and supporting individual needs
- Sensory issues and promoting autism friendly environments
- Strategies to support emotional wellbeing
There will also be an opportunity to hear about the work that the National Civil War Centre has been doing with Autism East Midlands to make the site more welcoming to people with autism.
