Over the past few years, we have increasingly been asked to deliver autism training and development, drawn from the vast personal, professional, and academic experience of our staff here at Matthew's Hub.
Whilst we firmly believe that an academic understanding of autism theory is vital, there is nothing like training delivered from a lived experience.
‘Nothing about us without us’
Here at Matthew's Hub we believe that it is the right of every autistic person to have a voice, so It is for this reason that we promise that there will always be a least one autistic person involved in the delivery of our autism training, as a training lead when delivering face to face training or speaking in the wider community.
A mixture of autism theory and lived experience, our training explores and debunks many of the myths and misunderstandings surrounding autism while offering solutions to many of the issues faced by autistic people today and is entirely written, produced and delivered by Carl, Specialist Mentor Abbey Townend and members of the autistic community from Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire, it is in essence, the voice of a community.
Our training packages have been designed and written by Carl Cameron: MA Autism Spectrum; QTLS; MSET. Carl, who is autistic has over 10 years’ experience and a proven track record delivering autism training across the region and beyond, but don’t just take our word for it, here is some of the feedback we’ve received from our autism training:
