Ask autism online training from The National Autistic Society
This suite of online training modules focuses on helping frontline professionals develop a better understanding of autism and gain confidence in interacting with people on the autism spectrum. The training modules are uniquely developed and delivered by people on the autism spectrum. They provide an ‘insider’s’ perspective of autism to give you a unique understanding of how people on the autism spectrum would like to be understood and supported. Who are the Ask autism online training modules for? The training is for anyone who has contact with people on the autism spectrum as part of their daily activities; whether as colleagues, clients, patients or members of the public. What is included in each module? Each module takes between 40-90 minutes to complete and has a range of interactive features including: pre- and post-course assessments, film clips, exercises and scenario based learning, and printable information sheets.
What modules are available?
1 – Understanding autism
This module provides perspectives from people on the autism spectrum about how autism is defined and experienced. The module will enable learners to recognise the strengths and challenges experienced by many people on the autism spectrum and how to respond to create enabling environments.

This module explores recognising communication differences for people on the autism spectrum and what factors impact upon successful communication. This will allow learners to respond to communication differences to effectively support people on the autism spectrum.
3 – Autism and sensory experience

Learners will be better able to recognise the impact of these differences for people on the autism spectrum and how to respond to sensory needs to provide effective support.

This module explores the differences in how people on the autism spectrum experience stress and anxiety. Learners will explore the factors that impact on stress and anxiety, in order to provide effective support to reduce that impact on people on the autism spectrum.
