During the course you will be given advice on how to make your school or club more accessible to Autistic children.

We will give you helpful tips on how to attract, support and keep Autistic kids in your school or club.

Our main aim is to support you to make those changes so that you school or club can be a more inclusive place. For many Autistic kids their extra-curricular activities are their safe haven, a place where they can be themselves and meet similar peers.

This course will be delivered by founder of AUsome Training and Konfident Kidz Evaleen Whelton. Evaleen made the wonderful discovery that she is Autistic 8 years ago at the age of 37. We know that “wonderful discovery” is not a familiar way to describe finding out you’re Autistic but it is illustrative of Evaleen’s outlook and passion! She taught Speech and Drama for 20 years and  is passionate about  the huge benefits that the arts, sports and other activities  bring to our children and young people. She is beyond excited to bring you this wonderful course.
