This course is delivered by qualified Autism subject specialists who have worked closely with the National Autistic Society to develop training workshops for individuals and industry.

This one-day course provides an introduction to The National Autistic Society SPELL framework. SPELL is a framework for understanding and responding to the needs of children and adults on the autism spectrum, developed through evidence-based practice. It focuses on 5 principles which have been identified as vital elements of best practice in autism, and emphasises ways of how to change the environment and our approaches, to meet the specific needs of adults and children on the autism.

This course looks at each element of the framework, with practical examples to illustrate each component:

  • Structure: Why is structure necessary in our lives and how to support people on the autism spectrum in creating structured environments using visual information
  • Positive: How to develop and maintain positive approaches and expectations
  • Empathy: How to reduce the gap in the double-empathy problem
  • Low Arousal approach: What is a low arousal approach and ways of maintaining this
  • Links: Creating and maintaining links between the individual, their wider support networks and the community spectrum.

No formal assessment.

This course is suitable for anyone working with children or adults on the autism spectrum and looking to develop their understanding of best practice in supporting people on the autism spectrum using the SPELL approach.
