The training will provide practical strategies that educational professionals may use to support teenagers with autism. It will also focus on the delivery of sexuality and relationships education for students with autism
This training will examine the broad definition of life skills, within the contexts of home, school, leisure and personal care, and how the core difficulties, associated with autism, directly affect the development of such skills.
