Autism Awareness Training

Autism Awareness.

'Autism Awareness' is course for professionals who have little or no knowledge of autism and is designed to give them as much knowledge as is reasonably possible in 3 hours, so they feel less de-skilled when they meet autistic people and can apply themselves to helping in the most meaningful way.

It is the only Autism Awareness training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online.

Option 4: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee each time you run it or your chosen modules (50% of the 'Online Live and Exclusive' fee, regardless of whether the course is held Face-to-Face or Online).
