The training consists of two presentations that provide an introduction to the Autism Spectrum.
Part 1 looks at themes such as what Autism is, traits & behaviours associated with Autism, the social challenges that autistic people face day to day, coping mechanisms, and barriers to employment.
Part 2 briefly recaps the themes from part 1 and looks at themes such as the different types of Autism, skills and abilities commonly associated with Autism, mental health, the pros and cons of the two different models of disability, advice on how best to support autistic residents and colleagues you may work with, and famous people on the spectrum. Part 2 also features interactive elements such as a quiz.
Both presentations feature videos.

It covers what self-harm is, and why people might hurt themselves, as well as providing space to think about what a helpful response to someone who has hurt themselves might be.

This course has been developed to either stand alone or complement others in a series of events, and utilises a range of tools to offer a participative online training experience.
Worksheets, handouts and copies of the presentation will be available to complement learning.
