We offer a variety of training sessions covering neurodiverse conditions such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia.

Supporting Autism and Neurodiversity (SAND) is a 6 week basic training course. Each  2hour 30 minute session includes a presentation and time for Q & A. The aim is for participants to attend all 6 sessions to build the knowledge required to support their individual(s) or themselves. The morning session is generic but will focus on young people aged from 2 – 15 years.

Week 1 is an introduction to the presentation and impacts of neurodiversity, explaining the different conditions and their overlaps.

The course will be  delivered via Zoom in partnership with DIFFERabled, and places can be booked by emailing differabledscotland@gmail.com. Please include your name, postcode (only first three digits) & a very brief bio on what the benefits of the sessions could support you with (e.g. My name is Jean, postcode G62, & I am mum/dad/carer/grandparent/aunt/uncle etc. of a daughter/son etc. who is aged 4yrs/35yrs, diagnosed/undiagnosed with whatever neurodiverse condition). This will  give an insight into where to aim the sessions.
