Autism Reality Experience
Additional charges apply for the weekend
The Autism Reality Experience is an innovative, immersive and hands on training which has been developed to give non-autistic people an experience of the sensory processing difficulties faced by people on the autism spectrum.
Invented by Training 2 CAREs Managing Director Glenn Knight and Autistic people, the Autism Reality Experience really is as true to life as currently possible and is changing the landscape of understanding Autism.
Already commissioned by the NHS, Care Providers, Universities and Colleges, Prisons, Police, Ambulance, Schools, Families and many more the Autism Reality Experience continues to develop and give a greater empathy and understanding.
Glenn Knight comments In 2020, the government are bringing into law that every nurse and person in social care must have autism awareness training and there is no better way of gaining this awareness than walking in their shoes, understanding the daily issues they face and recognising that these are often caused by our lack of knowledge from their point of view.
In 2020, Training 2 CARE will extend the A.R.E further by having a library of targeted videos environments that will extend with partnerships between the prison service and the police service. This will continue to grow year on year so that we provide targeted training that meets your personal needs.
The Autism Reality Experience can be delivered anywhere in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales via our 9 mobile simulators which ensures the integrity of the course with a very controlled environment.

What do we cover?
This course gives delegates an experience of what it is like to have Autism and then an in-depth teaching session that helps delegates to really improve knowledge. Delegates will be able to use their own experiences going through the Autism Reality Experience to build greater empathy and understanding for what it might be like for autistic people they know, which will in turn help them to come up with simple yet transformative changes to make the world a more inclusive place for all.
Delivered on a mobile simulator, the ARE can have up to a maximum of 12 delegates per course, delivered upto a 3 hour period and 2 x courses per day, this means a maximum of 24 delegates per day.

"The feedback from staff on the above training was outstanding. They have made comments that the Autism reality experience was the “the best” training they have
"The actual reality / experience part is a huge eye opener into what it's like to be Autistic. I came away thinking that my little boy is a pretty amazing little dude. It really gives an insight into what he deals with on a daily basis, how hard it is for him to do tasks, follow instructions and how communication is key."
"Absolutley incredible experience and really has helped me to understand my son who has autism. Thank you"
"That was the most amazing training course that I have ever done. So interesting and really should be mandatory to all who work with autistic people."
"Excellent training with Chelsey from your team today. Thank you so much. This is the best Autism training I've done!"
