This one day training course is aimed at professionals, parents and carers. It uses practical evidence-based strategies to teach social skills in a school or home setting. It provides an insight into the barriers and obstacles that may prevent children with autism or Asperger’s from understanding and using social skills.

It was great to talk about the specific children that we teach and think about the practical strategies we could use to help them.
