Cothu train the trainer course for professionals supporting parents of Autistic kids CPD AUsome Training
13.5 CPD hours
External Event, IACP CPD approved.

This course is designed to equip helping professionals with the tools to support parents of Autistic children and teens after diagnosis/ identification in a neuro-affirming way.
Cothú is an easy to deliver, ready- to- go course with weekly plans and all the content and materials practitioners need at their fingertips, all designed by Autistic people
Training Pathway
We are finding that levels of knowledge on neuro-affirming approaches and Autistic content vary vastly depending on previous exposure to Autistic Culture and so our pathway to training incudes a self led 6 hour video Induction module.

Induction module – 6 hour self-led online training so that everyone is on the same page before being trained in Cothú . At this stage we look at the history of autism, problematic theories and research, the exclusion of Autistics, Autistic rights, trauma and neuro-affirming approaches.This is followed by assessment so that we can be sure everyone understands our rights based approach and will be able to deliver Cothú as it is intended.

Upon successful completion trainers can then move on to be trained in delivering the Cothú Program itself.
