Alta ASN provide training in a variety of areas within additional support needs, including autism, alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) and attachment theory/nurture, as well as taster sessions for parents and professionals into all the aspects of Alta’s family and community support. Previous training has included ‘Introduction to Makaton’, ‘Making the Most of Boardmaker’ and ‘Attachment: Pupils, Parents and Practitioners’.
Other available courses include ‘Autism Spectrum Disorder – Mythbusting and Factsharing’ and bespoke workshops for any audience whether it be professionals, parents or school pupils. We can also host and coordinate training by other practitioners into areas of interest upon request, particularly for community groups, parents/carers and local practitioners, such as our Moving and Handling with Hoist Training which was hosted by Alta ASN and delivered by a certified Training for Care trainer.
Please get in touch with your training requests, we can offer courses and workshops across Scotland on site or at a venue near you.
