“As the father of an autistic child and being autistic myself I know the importance of not only training courses but good, accurate ones. In my work as an autistic speaker I come across many courses where the information is inaccurate or outdated and created without input from autistic adults. Fortunately this is not the case with this programme from Living Autism. I can happily recommend and endorse it and the excellent work that they do.”
