We are passionate about using the most up-to-date research to inform our teaching approaches. We actively question out-dated ideas such as Dyads of Impairments and take a more positive approach that means letting go of the Deficit Models.
All of our courses and materials are Autistic-led. This means that they are provided by Autistic people, for the benefit of Autistic children and those who work with them and love them. Our training courses are aligned with the values of Neurodiversity, and current research and thinking. Neurodiversity describes the reality of human society, where each of us brings unique contributions rather than one person being more valuable than the other.
Unfortunately, most autism training and research has never been fact-checked by Autistic people. Many autism training courses explain very little about Autistic children beyond out-dated and stereotypical representations.
Did you know that current research which contradicts many of these stereotypes, will take almost 20 years to filter into colleges and CPD courses? AUsome Training brings you the most current information right now because approaches based on stereotypes are unhelpful and often harmful. Many of the “behaviours” associated with autism are actually a result of using unhelpful approaches. AUsome Training helps you to develop a truly understanding and inclusive school.
