Autism: Training

autistic boy

I offer training for family, teachers, care staff and other professionals who work with children with behavioural difficulties. Practical guidance can help these key people to achieve the best outcomes for the children concerned. The training I deliver helps with increasing understanding, improving relationships, developing strategies and managing personal stress.

The training I offer is tailored to the specific needs of the group but often includes:

  • Increasing understanding of the characteristics of autism
  • Gaining insight into the perspectives of a person with autism with regard to communication, theory of mind and sensory differences.
  • Increasing understanding of behaviour
  • Developing understanding and confidence in using communication aids
  • Developing ways to manage sensory differences
  • Managing the personal stress that is very common when living with or working with children with autism
  • Developing positive relationships with children with autism
  • Developing strategies to manage inappropriate behaviour
  • Using a specific framework to help to address future difficulties without the need for additional support
  • Improving sleep
  • The needs of siblings
  • Helping to overcome specific phobias
  • Managing feeding difficulties

I provide training that is informative, interactive and thought-provoking and that develops the skills and confidence of individuals to a level where they feel able to manage in the future with limited professional support.

Further support including consultation is available following training if needed.

If you would like to discuss your training needs or would like further information on the training I provide, please contact me.
