Professional development workshops

Autism SA hosts a variety of professional development workshops and webinars throughout the year for professionals that support individuals on the autism spectrum.

Autism SA’s highly skilled and diverse training team includes a range of professionals with extensive knowledge and experience, and individuals with a lived experience of the autism spectrum.

Workshops are hands-on, practical, realistic, engaging and based on the most up-to-date research. The emphasis is on guiding participants through a range of activities to increase their knowledge, understanding and confidence in implementing relevant strategies for their particular setting.
