Autism training

We provide a range of free e-learning and classroom based autism training. The training is available to anyone who either works or lives in Stockport.

The training is particularly useful for people who work with those affected by autism.

The classroom based training has been designed, developed and is co-delivered by adults with autism and/or family members. We also work in collaboration with Greater Manchester Autism Consortium.
