Understanding the Autistic Brain

Suitable for professionals working with children and young people including senior management, teaching and support staff.

Children and young people with autistic spectrum conditions can find life in social complex environments, like schools extremely challenging. Understanding autism and how people are affected allows us to ensure a comprehensive and meaningful access to education.

This is a cutting edge half day training course combining the latest neuro-scientific research into autism with experiential exercises that will help you to understand what it might be like to live with some of the characteristics of autism.

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Have explored the history of autism, including the latest changes in the DSM-V
  • Understand the new diagnostic criteria and how the triad of impairments has become a Dyad
  • Have considered the impact of genetic and environmental factors in the ‘explosion’ of autism
  • Understand how the brain of someone with autism may differ from a neuroltypical brain
  • Understand how to support students with autism in the school

This is a professional development event designed to increase knowledge and develop skills in this area. The approach to learning is both interactive and engaging to meet the needs of all participants.

One day course – please contact us for the next available date. The course can be delivered in two modes either as a facilitated for a single organisation or on a per delegate basis for centrally held courses. Please contact to discuss your requirements.
