Our training is split in to three levels:

* Entry Level: this is a good place to start for parents which can give a good overall understanding of autism and what can help in terms of approaches and support


** Intermediate Level: this training builds on the basic knowledge of autism and applies it to different contexts or will look at one area of support in more detail. There is a wide range of intermediate courses and we would suggest choosing the relevant topics at the right time


*** Advanced Level: this training requires a good working knowledge of autism to get the most out of the training sessions or its main focus is on a very specialised area


WHILST OUR TRAINING IS ALL FREE FOR REGISTERED PARENTS TO ATTEND, PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ OUR CANCELLATION POLICY ON EACH EVENTBRITE EVENT.
