I now offer an experiential Autism Awareness presentation session, which is particularly suitable for schools, colleges, universities and not-for-profit organisations and can be tailored for both staff and students. For now I am offering a small number of these at no charge for my time.
This is a lively, roughly one hour-long multimedia session, from an experiential viewpoint filled with personal accounts and relevant information, focussing on diversity and strengths over disorders and disabilities. The more common themes such as the autism spectrum, stereotypes, interventions, communities, identity, creativity, self-discovery, stimming etc. are delivered with clear descriptions, video clips, dialogue, role play, etc. to strengthen awareness and the inclusive, compassionate mindset. I like to conclude with a short guided Mindfulness session to demonstrate its stress-reducing benefits, which many autistic people are now practicing.
“Thanks you for coming it was a real eye opener and very informative. The students were engrossed. Hope to keep working with you.”

In conjunction with Disability Sheffield Centre for Independent Living, I also offer Insight Autism Training days to companies and organisations.
Disability Sheffield is a small user led organisation that works with disabled people to increase their capacity to live independent and fulfilling lives. Over the last few years we have been developing Autism Insight Training to increase opportunities for people with Autism to play an equal role within our communities and to challenge misconceptions about Autism and Autistic spectrum conditions.
Our interactive training is unique as it has been fully designed and is delivered by people with Autism and carers.
The General Autism Insight Training includes:
- Creating an autism friendly organisation
- Autism accessible customer service
- Understanding autism and its characteristics
- Myths and misunderstanding of autism
- Social and medical models of autism as a disability in your work practice
- Making your organisation ‘Credibility’ recognised
Full or half day training tailored to the needs of your organisation, our workshops are engaging and enjoyable.
If this is something you feel you or your staff would benefit from, ask us how you might like this training to be delivered to you. We are happy to have a discussion about costs and how best we can meet your training needs.
