COVID has created many challenges and barriers to services that affect our families, however, sometimes silver linings happen and make for needed change. A new After Diagnosis (Autism) course that has recently been co-written by Sarah Jordan and the Specialist Teaching team, along with input from parents and service users. You may have previously attended ASCEND, this is now the updated version with the aim to make information freely accessible online. This has been achieved through the Recovery College. Staff in school will also be encouraged to get to know the training material and resources. It would be great to hear any feedback once you have accessed the course!
