BAY Centre hosts course about autism
A COURSE taught at Burnham’s BAY Centre has given visitors an insight into autism.
Allison Ward, who works locally training people with funding from CLP and Somerset Skills and Learning, led the course called ‘An Introduction to the Autistic Spectrum’.
The free course provided information on Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and discussed challenging behaviour, communication skills and more.
David Fothergill, chairman of Somerset County Council, attended the course. He said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the day, excellent content and delivered with such insight.
“I was totally humbled by the experiences which both delegates and the trainer described.”
Course learners were all presented with certificates at the finish of the day.
