It was a really fantastic course. I felt there was lots of opportunity to ask specific questions about how the materials applied to the client group I work with (adults with learning disabilities) and Carol was very knowledgable. Getting to practice using the materials with real people who gave their time to come in to support our learning was invaluable. Whilst it just gave the foundations to go away and start practicing using the tools in real life I felt confident that I had enough knowledge to do this. Thanks so much.
Overall I would rate the course highly and recommend it to others. The course trainer was very knowledgeable and provided experiential and practical information on the tools. The practical demonstration of the ADI and ADOS were also valuable. The venue was appropriate and the course was enjoyable and beneficial. I now feel more confident in my understanding and use of both tools.
I thoroughly enjoyed the week of training. I found Carol to be extremely knowledgeable and it was clear that she had a great amount of clinical experience, but balanced this with remaining down to earth and empowering the clinicians present to trust their own clinical judgement and reinforcing that there was not a "perfect" way to do an Autism assessment. I found the course materials to be exemplary. It was really helpful to have a "live" example of an ADI-R and ADOS, and also found the video content really useful throughout. Finally, I thought the venue was perfect for the event, with good facilities and high quality food. This is definitely one of the best training courses I have been on and would definitely recommend the course to colleagues and other services.
This was a fantastic course. Carol is a wonderful trainer. She is incredibly knowledgeable and Patient with all the questions. The materials were all good quality and the pace of the course was very well done. There was Good opportunities for networking. Thank you Carol. I look forward to working with you in the future
As a new practitioner into the role as an ASD practitioner, I was a little nervous about the course and my skills and abilities. Throughout the 5 days i grew in confidence and was inspired by the trainers knowledge experience practise and how this was presented in the training. It was an engaging and interactive course with an excellent balance of visual tools to support the verbal information being shared.
