What is Autism Workshop

Creating Inclusive Communities

Would you like to learn how to better support someone on the autism spectrum? Would you like to make your business or place of work more inclusive by becoming more sensory-friendly? Our community inclusion autism training does just that! 

Over the course of an hour, participants learn how community members on the autism spectrum may experience the world with the goal of increasing autism awareness and acceptance.  

The world we want to see is one where community accommodations are commonplace, and community spaces are designed to support all neurotypes.

Our training is informed and developed by autism service providers, parents of children on the spectrum, and autistic self-advocates.
