What Attendees Are Saying

Thank you for such an enthralling evening. I have been studying and working with individuals with autism for the last fifteen years and it was a pleasure to listen to a complex condition delivered in a manageable and informative way. Mrs M J Bailey (13/10/21)

I am a mum of 6 children  3 of which are autistic, your course has helped me a lot tonight, what instantly jumped out at me was the information of different pregnancy, my 3 autistic children each had growth issues during my pregnancies. The information on mirroring jumped out also, we have recently started copying and joining in with our 3 year old who is autistic and non verbal, we jump up and down with him when he is excited, we join in lining cars up, and when he feels things like grass and bark on trees since doing so we have noticed he has began to copy our behaviours.

Good overall and very informative. Helped me understand what is going on behind the behaviour of autism.

Thank you for the course – it was a brilliant tool as always. Nicola-Jane F. (20/9/21)

Wale, as always, provides clear insights and is able to provide appropriate answers on the spot. Dianne H., School Counsellor (20/9/21)

It is a very useful course for parents or people with ASD, or any one working with people who have ASD as this explains why people with ASD show certain traits/behaviours and that this is nothing they choose to do, but something they are “designed” to do because of their brain structure. This will hopefully give assurance for but also provide more understanding towards people with ASD. Anja M. Counsellor and parent of ASD child. (20/9/21)

It was very in depth in the brain science so felt it was like a biology/science lesson which I liked. I maybe found it hard to focus on some parts (possibly the time?!) as I felt there was a lot of new vocabulary to grasps in the learning, parts of brain, different chemicals etc but it opens up the gateway for further learning so its not a bad thing!
