How we help Training and consultancy Training and Consultancy We campaign for the rights and recognition of autistic people, and believe that education and understanding of autism is the key to creating a more autism friendly society. We work with families, communities and businesses to encourage a better understanding of autism and are able to provide information, advice, bespoke training and consultancy. Leeds Autism Services have over 30 years of experience supporting adults with autism in a range of settings including residential, domiciliary, vocational and community based. Our charity wants to promote the idea that adults with autism can live fulfilled lives, and make a positive contribution to society. We believe that increased understanding of autism spectrum conditions is a major key to achieving this vision. "We completed the two-hour training and it was a fantastic overview of working with neurodiverse people. We went through key areas such as ‘common myths’, ‘the spectrum’, and ‘Autism positives’ to give us a base level of knowledge and understanding, before going on to talk more specifically about the ways we can adapt our working to better support neurodiverse volunteers that we work with. Since the training we have linked in with our HR team to develop a plan that includes ways we can adapt our onboarding processes for both volunteers and staff members, including taking forward the ‘one page profile’ idea. We really value and appreciate the time and expertise shared with us, thank you Leeds Autism Services" -Rachel, Volunteer Manager, Leeds Hospital Charities Autism is a developing field, and we are constantly increasing our theoretical knowledge and developing our range of interventions to support people effectively. We want to share our knowledge and experience with others and help shape a future where people with autism are better understood, accepted by others and have equal access to opportunities. Our training and consultancy packages are available to all, and our tailor made to suit people and organisations. As a charity, we are able to offer very competitive rates and always strive to ensure high quality and excellent value. Companies we have recently delivered training for include Alnwick Castle, House of Light, Housing Leeds (as part of Leeds City Councils Diversity month), and Community Links / Ripon Walled Garden.
