This one day course explores how you can help autistic children and adults to reduce stress and anxiety, how to understand their behaviour, and how to support them during difficult times. Choose a training option below.

About the training

Stress and anxiety affect many autistic children and adults, causing significant distress that may be expressed in ways that challenge the person and others who struggle to understand them.This course is designed for anyone who works with autistic children or adults and already has an understanding of autism.

We recommend this course to all practitioners because anxiety and stress are such a difficulty for many autistic people. We must understand why this is if we are to provide support that works and makes a lasting difference.

Training includes:

  • training booklet and information provided for each delegate.
  • opportunity to hear autistic perspectives; this may be through films, quotes from autistic people or the inclusion of a speaker by experience
  • signposting to relevant literature and resources.
