We know that an ordinary life is achievable for anyone with the right support – and this includes people on the autistic spectrum. Our autism awareness training provides an insight into how people on the autistic spectrum 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 on the autistic spectrum. It challenges myths and stereotypes about what people on the spectrum 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."
