Description

Utilising practitioner knowledge/experience together with a ground up approach to continuous improvement, long term, sustainable development in practice can be achieved.

The Autism Practice Improvement Frameworks combines practitioner experience with established improvement methodology. Underpinned by seven statements that set out ethics that guide/inform our contemporary understanding of autism and our approach to supporting individuals in our services.

We’ll explore this approach and how it can contribute to sustainable changes in practice, resulting in improved services.

This session is open to all who work in the sector.
