Tuesday 25 April 2023 and Tuesday 2 May 2023.

This course has been designed to support school staff to re-examine perceptions of what it means to be autistic, challenging historical and stereotypical views of autism.
Attendees will be guided in expanding their knowledge about what an autistic identity really is by learning about autism through the lens of neurodiversity; thinking about differing profiles, strengths and challenges. Through developing an increased awareness of an autistic identity, participants will then be supported to consider ways in which accommodations, adjustments and changes to practices in your school will help support autistic students thrive within PE and physical activity.
This course has been developed using resources created by autistic advocates, reflecting on real lived
experience, amplifying autistic perspectives. The course is suitable for anyone! This course is delivered in person meaning participants have the benefits of in session discussions pertinent to personal experiences and training needs. Clinicians will provide opportunities throughout for discussion and answering specific questions.
