We recognise that autism can not only present challenges for delegates, but that those challenges are different for each individual; that there is no “one size fits all” solution.
Regardless of whether you notified us of this prior to arrival, we would encourage you to make your trainer aware – ideally as early in the course as possible (for example on a coffee break).
Once your trainer is aware and we have a better understanding of your specific needs, we can help by (for example):
- Providing digital copies of materials for you to read in advance of a lesson
- Providing additional time in any assessment activity
- Providing extra support outside of lessons
We’re not autism experts, but by listening to our autistic students we hope to be able to better support them in how we design our materials and our courses.
