We offer training and consultancy support for sports practitioners. These courses provide a comprehensive introduction to the autism spectrum focusing on the delivery of sport and physical activity.

Recognising and understanding the key areas of difficulty experienced by both the participants and the session leaders is vital to providing effective support. The National Autistic Society has developed training materials which aim to increase:
