KNUB is all about:
Implementing best practice
Making sure that learning improves outcomes
The workbook and programme are 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 workbook 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.
We also provide as part of the programme starter Autism Awareness training materials and a guide for trainers.
Additionally we can help you review implementation of the programme and identify real-world outcomes from it.
KNUB targets the Skills For Care 'intermediate' level autism competencies.

A Unique Autism Workbook + Online Resources + Support
We have developed a unique in-work framework for staff understanding, development, and performance. Our workbook and programme will ensure the support your staff provide is aligned with the latest thinking and practice for supporting individuals with autism.
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.
How long does it take?
