An 'in-work' autism learning programme
We have developed a unique framework for staff understanding, development, and performance. Our programme will ensure the support your staff provide is aligned with the latest thinking and practice for supporting individuals with autism.
KNUB is all about:
The programme is supportive, developmental and enjoyable for all staff at any level.
Elements of the programme
The programme starts with a day workshop for team leaders, supervisors and managers to introduce them to the programme and equip them with the resources they will need.
Each member of your staff is equipped with a high quality workbook and links to online resources that are matched to individual learning activities e.g. videos and templates.
You then have the option of introducing your staff to the programme, the workbook and it's contents yourself or we will provide group training on it for you.
Additionally we can help you review implementation of the programme and identify real-world outcomes from it.
How long does it take?
The scale and pace of the programme is completely determined by you and your learners. We'll provide you with support throughout. Different learners will move through the workbook at different speeds. Operational constraints might also mean that some organisations complete it quicker than others. The workbook contains aproximately 30 hours of study/activity.
What's covered in the programme?
Individual members of staff will complete (with support) learning activities on:-
Approaches and interventions for autism
Understanding autism and difficult behaviour
Investigating and planning for sensory needs
Positive programme planning
Person centered thinking and working
Knowledge (about autism), Understanding (the person) and (changing staff) Behaviour to deliver great support to individuals on the spectrum, KNUB is a unique in-work framework for staff understanding, development, and performance.
Responding to the unique needs of people on the spectrum is not intuitive. It’s something we will have to develop an understanding of. Autism is not like other conditions. In autism, solutions and support approaches don’t suggest themselves and aren’t always obvious. The reasons why people with autism do what they do and have the difficulties they have are often complex. All in all this is something we are going to have to learn about.
Our knowledge and understanding of autism, and the skills to respond to the needs presented by people with the condition is supported by training. However training on it’s own doesn’t always deliver the service improvements we want. We have all come away from workshops and courses feeling that we may know a little more but we still aren't confident we can go back to our school, service or centre and make a difference. The KNUB framework ensures that everything we do is aligned with the latest thinking and practice for supporting individuals with autism.
