Autism and the Criminal Justice System: introduction to autism

This course focuses on how and why autistic people may be involved with the Criminal Justice System, and how professionals should adapt their processes.

About the training

Recognising and understanding the key areas of difference experienced by autistic people is vital for providing effective support.

This course is suitable for professionals working in the criminal justice system, including police officers, prison workers, secure unit and court staff who want to develop a general awareness and understanding of autism. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss their practices and how these can be adapted to meet the needs of autistic people.

Our interactive training options provide delegates with access to our courses in a learner friendly and accessible way. Your training will be delivered by one of our experienced and knowledgeable training consultants, using a combination of PowerPoint presentation, videos and discussion to support learning. We schedule regular breaks into all our sessions. 

Our live online courses are delivered using Microsoft Teams. Delegates will be sent joining links and handouts prior to the course. We have approximately 15 delegates on each group, and we try to be sensitive to individual adjustments that people may need, including cameras being optional and using the chat box for interactions. 

Our face-to-face courses are delivered at a venue of your choosing. Handouts will be provided at the beginning of the course. We have approximately 25 delegates on each group.  


Training times

Our live online course is generally run across two days, 9.30am to 1pm across both days with regular breaks. However, we can liaise with you to offer a range of times that would suit your setting. 

Our face-to-face course is run in one day, from 9.30 to 16.00, including breaks and lunchtime
