Our postgraduate certificate in autism and Asperger syndrome is a successful collaboration between The National Autistic Society and Sheffield Hallam University, which has run since 2003.
The course is offered nationally and in future, we plan to offer it internationally, as it is the only qualification of this kind. The course has been sponsored and developed with support from The Asperger Syndrome Foundation founder Beatrice Buisseret.
During the three attendance days there will be a variety of speakers including Dr Luke Beardon and speakers with Asperger syndrome.
