Training Courses

Autism Training

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.

CAMHS

Autism Hampshire, in partnership with CAMHS, have been delivering an autism specific training cycle, encompassing 6 topic specific sessions, to parents and carers whose children are either on the pathway to diagnosis or have been recently diagnosed as on the autism spectrum. These training sessions have been hugely popular and often oversubscribed.

‘Putting my daughter’s behaviours into context of her autism and having practical ideas and solutions to help has been invaluable’

We would like to invite you to a free programme of six sessions offering learning, support, and advice in various aspects of Autism during your child’s assessment, or following their diagnosis.

Each session will cover a different aspect of the condition with the aim of increasing your understanding of your child’s unique way of looking at the world, and how this may show itself in how they behave. It is beneficial to start at the beginning and work through the first 5 sessions as they are designed to create a context for the final session which focuses on behaviour. If, however, you are unable to attend on any of the dates given overleaf, you have the option of catching up next time around as this is a rolling programme.

What will happen at the group?

Each Group is 3 hours long. The first half consists of a presentation on the given topic after which there will be an opportunity to put questions to a panel comprising representatives from Autism Hampshire and CAMHS.

Dates:

  • Wednesday 19th September- Autism Overview
  • Wednesday 17thOctober- Communication
  • Wednesday 14th November- Social Interaction
  • Wednesday 12th December- Thinking

Autism Hampshire trainers, in partnership with Hampshire County Council and Hampshire Autism Voice, delivers the Autism Ambassador scheme for Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and the Isle of Wight and it was launched in May 2015 in line with the Department of Health recommendations in the ‘Think Autism’ strategy.

An Autism Ambassador can:

  • provide the opportunity to make a difference to a person living with autism and their families.
  • act as an agent for change through being a positive voice for people on the autism spectrum
  • raise awareness of autism through work processes and practices
  • influence reasonable adjustments that can be made in the workplace
  • build knowledge and sharing of best practice through development networks.

‘Very thought provoking thank you. Will certainly support the work I am currently undertaking’.

‘Great delivery and incredibly informative! Very approachable and clearly passionate team’.
