Training to raise awareness and provide effective support


It is possible to understand and support autistic adults who experience difficulties and with a little flexibility, you can make a significant difference to their lives. My specialist knowledge of the health and social welfare issues faced by ageing autistic people was developed through my years leading the ageing and autism workstream for the NAS. In 2014, the Ageing and Autism project won the National Autistic Society's Award for Outstanding Adult Services. 
Having a diagnosis of autism allows me to relate personal experience to objective knowledge.
