Autism related training courses have been delivered externally to parents, carers and many organisations over the last ten years with great success. Autism Hampshire trainers collaborate with Experts by Experience on the design and content of autism specific training and personal perspectives are an integral part of all the courses.
It is Autism Hampshire's policy to ensure all its staff are trained to the very highest standards. To facilitate this we have a robust annual training calendar of in-house specialist training covering the care and education of adults on the autism spectrum. All support staff work towards gaining Autism Practitioner status through completing the Autism Pathway autism training programme.
The training is delivered by qualified trainers with autism specific University certificates and employment backgrounds. This ensures that all training courses have relevant content and anecdotal stories to illustrate learning points. Training delivery is monitored for quality assurance purposes through training observations and course feedback and evaluation.

SCIE have also produced a guide titled SCIE’s Guide 43: Improving Access to Social Care for Adults with Autism. The link below provides access to the full guide, an at-a glance summary of it, an easy-read of the summary, and the underpinning research from the University of Sussex:
If my subsequent experience, study and research have taught me anything it is that people on the autism spectrum need understanding and accommodation rather than schooling in strategies aimed at masking their true characters.
