About the training
This course builds your knowledge of autism and how to support autistic students at university. The content is based around SPELL, which is a framework for understanding and responding to autistic people’s needs. It will allow you to develop better practice and use evidence-based strategies to support autistic children and adults.
This course is ideal for university staff who support autistic students and want to know more about autism and supportive approaches. Providing learners have a degree, this course meets the DSA-QAG criteria for university mentors and non-medical helpers.
Our interactive virtual training delivery model ensures we are proud to deliver the exact same learning outcomes for you as our face to face training course, in a learner friendly and accessible way.
