Introduction to Autism



Thank you for your interest in our new ‘Introduction to Autism’ online course!

We’ll be sharing with you a whole range of information that we know will be of huge help to all those working with people with autism. The course has 3 parts which are outlined below:

Part 1: About us
In the first part of the course we want to set the scene as to who we are, why we are doing the training and who do we provide training for. We believe it is important to provide this reassurance of the experience our team bring.

Part 2: Autism – History, facts and issues
In this part we share the context for Autism which includes a brief look into the history, the terminology and key issues that need to be considered, practiced and researched.

Part 3: Guidance, support and tips
We are so aware that it can be bewildering trying to find information or know what is the best quality. We have therefore pulled what we believe are all the key publications, books and websites into our course. In this section, we also have included hints and tips that we have gained ourselves over the many years of working in this field.

Where to go from here
Once you’ve paid your money for the course, you’ll be enrolled and within 24 hours will receive an email from our online course platform ‘Smart Sparrow’. In this email you will find a link to the course which you can take as many times as you like within this next 3 months – until 30th June 2019.

We love honesty, and we’ll be upfront with you that this is our first time in creating our own online resources!

So we are very much hoping that the technology works for us and that we can give you the service we want. If you come across anything that falls below your expectations or have any ideas/comments that can help us improve, then please don’t hesitate to let us know. Please send an email to
