Training

Why take autism training?

With 1 in 68 children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it is almost certain that if you work with youth, you have worked with an individual with autism.

Our goal is to ensure that you will be equipped with skills, knowledge and strategies to better support and communicate with the youth that you serve.

Who would benefit from autism training?

If you are a coach, instructor, volunteer, teacher, recreation worker or
child care provider, this training is for you.

Participants in Ausome’s training workshops learn to recognize and better understand autism. They will leave the training workshop with practical strategies to use immediately in any sports and recreation setting.

What will I learn?

Our workshops provide an overview of ASD and give examples of what ASD looks like in sports and recreation settings. We will provide a variety of strategies for supporting individuals with autism including:

  • Communication tips
  • Coaching strategies
  • Behaviour support and group management techniques

Where? When? What is the cost?

We can provide training at your location or at ours in the new House of Sport at the RA Centre (Riverside Drive). Workshops vary in length from 90 minutes to half day, and can be customized to meet individual or group interests. Workshop costs vary depending on location, size of group and duration of the event. Costs may be subsidized for non-profit organizations.
