Scottish Autism's training supports practitioners, professionals, and those who work with or alongside autistic people in a variety of settings including support services, educational establishments, and workplaces to improve their understanding of autism.

Participants will also look at how we process the environment for meaning and how this influences our thinking and decision-making.
