    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Scottish Autism's training supports practitioners, professionals, and those who work with or alongside autistic people in a variety of settings including support services, educational establishments, and workplaces to improve their understanding of autism.

    Understanding Autism as a Developmental Difference:

    This course aims to further develop participants' understanding of autism as a developmental difference. It will deepen understanding of typical and atypical development and explore what is meant by a spiky/uneven developmental profile in autism. The course will also explore the brain and emotional development and how we and others may respond to stress, in particular how autistic people may respond to this. Participants will also look at how their understanding of a person’s developmental profile will inform practice moving forwards. 

    This course is accredited by the CPD Certification Service.

    Course objectives are:

    • To explore what we mean by human development.
    • Explore how the brain processes information and its emotional development.
    • How does our knowledge of human development impact our practice? 

    The course is available on the following dates and virtual classroom sessions will take place on a Thursday. Participants will be able to choose a morning (09:30) or afternoon slot (13:30):

    • 23rd August - 10th September
    • 25th October - 12th November

    Book a place here.
