Autism: A different operating system
Autism: A different operating system
Hi, my name is David and I provide autistic-led training and development programmes and professional 1:1 advice and support.
I am a NAS -trained speaker, trainer, autism needs assessor, writer and advocate, with 15 years’ professional experience in health and social care. I have a unique insight into the needs of autistic individuals as an “expert by experience, ” being an autistic individual, parent, carer and professional.
Wired4Autism was established to offer specialised autism-specific training for frontline staff in the health and social care sectors.
I also offer post-diagnostic autism needs assessments to adults or children to assist them with obtaining the appropriate education or care provision.
My mission is to improve the lives of autistics and their families through promoting acceptance and advocacy and being the voice of those who continue to face social inequality and injustice.
I have PG Cert in Autism (Adults) from the University of Birmingham with Distinction and an Advanced Diploma in Autism. I am on the Advisory Panel for Autism Research at Birkbeck University London, a member of the Northamptonshire Autism Champions Network, an external co-facilitator with Triple A (All About Autism) and an approved trainer autistic expert by experience on both the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training in Learning Disability and Autism and the National Autism Trainer Programme.
