About the training
You may be a sports specialist who works with autistic children or adults, or you may support autistic children or adults and want to find out how best to help them enjoy sport.
This course is relevant for both sports specialists who want to increase their autism knowledge and autism specialists who want to engage more autistic children in sports.
This course was developed as part of the active for autism project. The focus of the project was to develop resources and training to increase the confidence and skills of sports and physical activity leaders in delivering inclusive sport and physical activity for autistic people, increasing the levels of participation of autistic people in sport and physical activity in order to build self-esteem and wellbeing.
We deliver this course using presentation, group interaction, self-directed learning, physical activity and video. Participants are advised to come dressed appropriately to allow them to participate in physical activities.
