Welcome to our website!
Aspie Trainers is a training organisation which aims to improve services for people with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASCs) living in West Sussex. We do this by employing the real experts – people with ASCs themselves – to deliver bespoke autism training from a first-person perspective.
For more info about us and the services we can provide, check out Our Services page. If you’re interested in using our services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Alternatively, you can always tweet us @AspieWS, or find us on Facebook.
We have secured some funding!
Aspie Trainers are delighted to announce that we have received some funding from the National Lottery Community Fund! We would like to thank National Lottery players for enabling us to continue our work, which means we will now be able to train younger autistic people (aged 18-24) to become trainers themselves. More news on this to follow! #NationalLottery
Forthcoming Training Workshops: 2020
In order to protect you, our valued customers and our team of #actuallyautistic trainers, Aspie Trainers is following the government advice to avoid unnecessary social contact and travel. The majority of trainees on our public courses are parents and carers who will be affected by school closures and/or the need to self-isolate which will in turn restrict their ability to attend training courses. Regrettably this means we are cancelling all training courses for the foreseeable future including the training we run on behalf of West Sussex Mind.
We will continues to review this with our training partners on a weekly basis. Please refer to eventbrite.co.uk to check if your course has been impacted.
We will remain active on social media during this uncertain time so do get in touch if you have any questions.
How to Book
All of our public training courses including those we deliver for third parties are advertised on the website and are bookable on eventbrite, We look forward to sharing training dates with you once normal service resumes. In the meantime if you are an organisation that would like to discuss bespoke training please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Forthcoming Workshops with our Partners at West Sussex Mind
Over the last 2 years Coastal West Sussex Mind has been an important and valued client of Aspie Trainers and we have loved delivering Autism, Adolescence and Education and Autism and Girls workshops for them across the county.
Due to the excellent feedback we receive from learners we will continue our partnership in 2020 providing three different, 3 hour training sessions as part of their ‘Family and Carer’s Autism programme'. These are; Autism and Girls, Autism, Meltdowns and Shutdowns and Communication on the Autistic Spectrum.
Bookings can be made on Eventbrite (see individual links below) and tickets are just £5 per person. Locations vary across Sussex and include Shoreham, Billingshurst, Haywards Heath, Crawley, Horsham and Worthing – session titles and locations are listed in the links.
Please find below dates from June 2020 that are currently being advertised but may be subject to cancellation due to Government guidelines on minimising the spread of Coronavirus through social distancing and travel restrictions.
We will continue to update our website as and when training is confirmed or cancelled and look forward to sharing our unique first person perspective of Autism.
