In July 2022, the Health and Care introduced a requirement that regulated service providers ensure their staff receive training on learning disability and autism which is appropriate to the person’s role.
Autism in Mind has co-designed, co-produced, and is constantly co-delivering autism training around the Core Capabilities Framework for Supporting Autistic People.
The framework sets out the skills and knowledge that health and social care workers need to deliver high-quality care and support for autistic people.
Our training covers core capabilities 1 and 2 and includes up-to-date information that is important to understand about autistic people.
This includes an understanding of double empathy, monotropism, autistic inertia, and the difficulties that autistic people have with their executive functioning skills because of the monotropic mind and autistic inertia.
Our training is bespoke and differentiated to meet the needs of health care, mental health, and social care staff.
Below is a draft programme of the mental health training that we are currently delivering virtually across the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne, and Wear Trust.
