Dads & Autism 

 Presented by: Justin Price, Executive Headteacher, Freemantles School

As a part of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion drive we have designed this course specifically for Dads and Male relatives that want to learn, as we want to be inclusive and we have identified that:

  • Dads often miss out on other training being offered as Mums are so keen to go.
  • Dads often open up less if attending with their partners
  • Previous feedback on specific Dads training has been hugely positive
  • The Understanding Autism course will cover the same content and will be open to all.
