Autism awareness training Bristol

Our Training

Bristol Autism Support offers a range of training talks and workshops which can be tailored to any setting.

Training is delivered in an engaging, conversational style by our founder, Kate Laine-Toner, who draws on her own experience as an autistic adult and parent of an autistic child.

We believe it is critically important to share information with the public about autism and neurodiversity. Therefore our training is affordable and very good value for money.

As an independent, flexible community organisation, we can easily create a bespoke training option for your workplace, venue, attraction or school. Below are some of our existing training options. All can be tailored specifically for your needs. If you don’t see what you need on this list, please get in touch! We love creating new training content.

The cost for each of these packages is based on a group of 30 people or less and assumes that we will come to your office or setting to deliver the training. There is no cost for travel within 10 miles of Bristol.
