Autism Awareness

New remote delivery - updated with COVID-19 specific information


The aim of this training is to increase awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorders. The Government promotes that adults who have autism should be able to live within a society that accepts and understands them. This includes being treated fairly when requiring healthcare.

People with autism have the same illnesses as everyone else; however, the way they respond to illness may be different and not obvious. Their presentation of Coronavirus may be very different from that of people who do not have autism.

Due to communication difficulties, there is a risk of diagnostic overshadowing when an individual may not be able to communicate their pain. They may present with a behaviour of concern and their illness may be overlooked. There has never been a more important time to increase employee's awareness of autism and how it may affect an individual. 

NAPPI Remote Delivery 

The awareness session is three-hours long, delivered over two 90 minute blocks.

Block 1: Autism Spectrum Conditions and Triad of Impairments 

Block 2: Sensory Stimuli and Strategies

This award is a stand-alone-course that has strong links to the NAPPI Positive Behaviour Support Model. The more employees are aware about how an individual has been affected by autism, the more that can be done to reduce behaviour of concern and empower them to have a better quality of life.  

Awareness Workshop Pricing:

The cost of attending the Autism Awareness (two-blocks) is £37.50 + VAT per person.
