For Parents

Every autistic child is different. Our training modules and materials have been designed to explore and build on these differences to support all autistic children to reach their full potential.

All our materials have been developed in collaboration with autistic young people, parents, practitioners and consultants with expertise in autism. 

Although our training materials and most of our resources are aimed at teaching professionals, you, as a parent, can help your child by recommending AET training to your child’s teachers and SENCO.

Resources for Parents

Autism Central 

As experts in autism education, we were delighted to have been chosen to work alongside NHS England and other autism partners to help create this new, FREE autism support programme for families and carers in England

Lisa Myers, Programme Director of Autism Central, said: 

“Autism Central is helping families to learn more about autism and the support available to them

There is a wide range of curated and new material along with signposting to learning resources.

This wrap-around learning benefits from the experiences of autistic people and their families - and prepares other families and carers to advocate to get the best from the services they encounter.”   

We are proud to share our collaboration on the education-specific resources which aim to support parents and carers of autistic children and young people.
