Autism Training from AUsome Training
AUsome Training is Ireland's First Autistic-led autism training company. What does Autistic-led mean? It means that our training is run, researched and delivered by people who are themselves Autistic.

It is also based on outdated theory and approaches that are not supported by the very people they seek to help.
