Supporting autistic people through social care assessments

This one-day course will develop your understanding of how to carry out care and support needs assessments that are sensitive to the needs of autistic adults.

About the training

The course has been developed by registered social workers and autism specialists in response to recommendations in the autism strategy published by the Department of Health. The strategy sends a clear message that local councils and local health bodies should ensure that key staff such as needs assessors receive specialist autism training.

This course is aimed at a variety of adult social care staff who carry out care and support assessments, including assessments of need and support planning. A basic understanding of autism is required for this course.
