We’re excited to announce the launch of the Autism Training Academy. The Autism Training Academy offers research-based, online, and asynchronous micro-trainings about autism and neurodiversity. All our courses are designed by Autistic experts and our brilliant allies. We currently have a free 20-minute online course called ‘Introduction to Autism’. This course is for everyone who wants to learn more about autism. Families, friends, and allies of Autistic individuals as well as those who want to be educated to understand and appreciate Autistic individuals will find this micro-training valuable.
The Academy also offers the 1-hour fee-based course ‘Introduction to Autism and Universal Design for Faculty’. This course is suitable for all faculty members in higher education who want to understand and appreciate Autistic students in their classrooms and how a Universal Design framework can be of great benefit to Autistic students and all students.
All courses can be accessed at www.autismtraining.academy. The next fee-based course ‘Parent Advocacy’ is currently being designed as part of our leadership series. Other courses in the leadership series will include: self-advocacy and your rights as an Autistic research partner. Please visit our website often as more free and fee-based courses will be made available on the website on an ongoing basis.
