Connecting Worlds

Delivering autism training courses and 'My story' educational and motivational sessions.

As we can all see from all the media coverage, the numbers of children, young people and adults accessing mainstream settings, schools and placements have risen dramatically over recent years; as have numbers of people receiving care in their own homes and residential settings. Unfortunately, training has not kept pace with these rising numbers.

Connecting Worlds autism training is based in the North East of England but covers all of the UK, offering face to face training packages around:

♦ autism awareness ♦ understanding autism and sensory sensitivities ♦ sensory processing difficulties ♦ promoting understanding and reducing anxiety using visual supports ♦ positive behaviour support♦ enhanced autism training  ♦

1:1 consultancy services are available for those who require:

♦ individual tailored support ♦ behaviour/needs-based assessments ♦ goal setting ♦ transition support ♦ environment assessments and improvement plans ♦

I have real life experience to share, having a son with severe autism, a husband with high functioning autism and 20 years’ experience working with children and adults with autism and related conditions. I worked for 15 years for Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council as part of a specialist disabilities team. I resigned my position recently to concentrate full time on Connecting Worlds autism training.

I travel to the client’s venue and supply all training materials. I deliver to public, private and voluntary groups of between five and 20 learners. All sectors covered, including educational establishments and health and social care. However, training is delivered to any groups of people who want to gain more understanding about autism.

Each learner receives a Certificate of Attendance. Following training, the client receives a breakdown of levels of learning improvement taken from completed pre and post questionnaires along with copies of feedback forms.

Most recently I delivered training packages into The Priory Care Group (The Whitby Scheme), Caremark (East Riding) and Camphill Village Trust at Botton Village, Danby. Through living and working across so many diverse environments and with so many individuals across the autism spectrum, I have gained a unique insight and empathy with those affected by the disorder.

MISSION STATEMENT: With greater understanding we can raise the prospects of children, young people and adults with autism; helping them to achieve the best outcomes and to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
