Changing Perspectives

Training Programmes

For Educators

We work in partnership with educational institutions and provide training to educators so they can better understand their students who are neurodiverse and may be on the autism spectrum. Educators may choose to refer their students to us, where we can provide education and career guidance supports at different stages in their life to explore the education and career choices open to them.

For Employers

We work with local employers to seek out relevant work experience and/or jobs based on the needs of individuals. Under Article 27 of the UN Convention for the Rights of People with Disabilities, States Parties recognize the right of persons with disabilities to work, on an equal basis with others; this includes the right to the opportunity to gain a living by work freely chosen or accepted in a labour market and work environment that is open, inclusive and accessible to persons with disabilities.

For Families

We provide parent and family support programmes for families of people with ASD. These courses are designed to support families and to create a shared learning environment where families can come together to learn from each other also.
