Free Autism Awareness Training in Shropshire

PRESS RELEASE Adelphi Care Services, Shrewsbury, Shropshire UK – is a leading provider of care for adults aged 18 and upwards with Autism, Asperger’s syndrome and other learning disabilities across the county.

The National Autistic Society joined partnership with the Royal College of GPs to make Autism a priority from 2014.

Adelphi Care Services has now extended its existing training services. As well as having 3 residential care homes in Shrewsbury and Wen it also has a respite home and apartments to support independent living.

Louise Almond who is the Training and Development Officer for Adelphi Care Services will be delivering the free awareness training.

“By delivering these awareness sessions, we are really opening people’s eyes as to the huge range of difficulties those with autism or Asperger’s can face,”

She continues:

“One thing we really try and get across is that for someone with autism, they see the world very differently. To them, everyone else is different and how they see things is the norm.”

Louise continues to add that everyone who has attended the sessions have found them to be very informative and helpful.

Autism has been made a priority for the medical profession from 2014 to 2017. As a result of this the free training programme has now been extended to anywhere in Shropshire

People who have already benefited from the sessions include teachers, driving instructors, staff at a dental practice, nurseries, care homes previously unfamiliar with dealing with those on the autistic spectrum and youth teams.

Louise can run open sessions at the Adelphi Care Services head office at Longbow Close, Shrewsbury or can carry out on-site training for those with suitable facilities.
