We know that an ordinary life is achievable for anyone with the right support – and this includes autistic people. Our autism awareness training provides an insight into how autistic people may experience the world as well as a basic awareness of what autism is and how it can affect people. The training gives participants practical tips on how they can adapt their behaviour and the environment to provide good support to people. It challenges myths and stereotypes about what autistic people can and can’t do, and inspires participants to think beyond diagnosis towards ordinary lives.

"Thought-provoking. As a police officer, I have more knowledge and will now give extra consideration when dealing with people on the autistic spectrum."
