Professional Services

With a wealth of experience, expertise and knowledge, DAS offers a wide variety of services to professionals in many areas, including:

  • Advice and guidance on how to get the best out of an employee or colleague with autism
  • Initial awareness raising for front line staff interacting with autistic clients
  • In depth training for professionals requiring specific input, such as teachers, medical staff or uniformed services
  • Support in producing materials or activities suitable for specific client groups

Many of our professional support services are completely free but for more in depth input we do levy a charge to cover the cost of materials and development time so please do contact us to discuss your requirements.

Recent training sessions have been delivered to a local medical centre, two housing agencies, the YMCA, Erewash Borough Council and the Derbyshire Youth Offending Team.

Feedback from participants has particularly highlighted how useful the training has been in informing their practice; the value for money it offered and how informative and enjoyable it was.
