Our Masterclasses are short, focussed training sessions that look at a single specialist topic in depth. They give you knowledge and tools that are hard to find elsewhere, and that you can apply straight away in your work. Our facilitators are experts in autism with a deep knowledge of the Masterclass topic that’s based on research, practice, or both. 

What are our Masterclasses like?

A Masterclass brings together a small group of professionals who want to focus on a particular subject. Sessions are lively, down-to-earth and generous: if you work with autistic people and are interested in the topic, you are welcome and your experience will be valued. 

You can discuss particular issues and ask questions about practice.

Every Masterclass focusses on applied strategies so you will leave your session better equipped to support autistic people.

Masterclasses usually last two or three hours in the morning or afternoon.

Who will I meet at our Masterclasses?

Our Masterclasses are open to any practitioner who works with or supports autistic people so you will meet fellow professionals who are keen to learn more and to share their experiences and knowledge.

Some sessions are designed for people supporting children or adults (or both) in specific settings. The information about these Masterclasses will make this clear.
