Working with Autism

Training for Staff working with Autistic people of all ages

Date: 19th July 2019 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This is a hugely popular course for anyone working with autistic people of any age, whether children, young people or adults. It has been presented to Oxfordshire professionals since 2011 and is always heavily oversubscribed. We are not funded to offer the course free of charge outside of Oxfordshire, but we have received numerous enquiries and are therefore aware that many other professionals would like to attend. So we are offering the same course on a pay to attend basis in Aylesbury. We look forward to meeting many new colleagues at the courses in June and July have no doubt that you will find them enjoyable and useful, as over 5,000 previous attendees have.

Refreshments provided; please bring own lunch
