Attendees: There are no limits as to the number who can attend, and workshops have been delivered to both small (e.g. 10) and large groups (80+). Workshops are appropriate for all age groups and backgrounds (upwards of age 14 years+, and 10 years+ for the neurodiversity day event), and have been carried out with: teenage school children; foundation degree students; degree students; charitable organisation staff/volunteers; Metropolitan Police personnel; support and well-being staff etc.
Fees: Training sessions are £100 per hour per trainer. If you are a charitable organisation with limited funds still get in touch and we can see what we can do – we never want to price out organisations wanting to improve their understanding of Autistic experience.
