25th Mar 2020

It may be world autism awareness week from 30 March - 5 April, but here at OLT we know that it’s essential to provide awareness, support and online training for pupils with autism all year round.

Autism is much more common than most people think and, whether you’re a teacher or a parent, we have a wealth of resources available for you to help.  From theory and practical tips for teachers to a free short course for parents, you can explore ASD and other additional needs in more detail with our range of online courses and insightful blogs.

Online courses

Autism Spectrum Disorder course
Take your understanding of autism to the next level with our online Autism Spectrum Disorder course. CPD certified for 20 hours of learning and available with tutor support or guided, it’s available from just £90pp. Your school may already have a licence or be willing to purchase a place for you.
