About us

AT-Autism came together because of a desire to deliver the best autism training and consultancy to partners in the UK and internationally. Our Directors and Associates have worked extensively in the autism and related fields, across a variety of contexts and within the public and charitable sectors.

We believe that to provide the best opportunities for individuals and families, training and support should only be given by highly experienced professionals. We also recognise that no one person will be able to provide the range and breadth of what is required. Therefore all of our work is carried out by an expert in the respective area identified and is overseen by an AT-Autism Director. When designing programmes for individuals and organisations we are led by the need to personalise the approach and by current evidence. Our experience means that we can respond swiftly and work in partnership with you to design workable and lasting solutions.

As a team we are experienced in working with partners where the cultural context means we have to make adjustments to the content and delivery of training. We enjoy working alongside our partners to develop measurable improvements in practice and wellbeing of people. Our collective experience is primarily in autism but our Directors and Associates are able to provide support in terms of neurodevelopmental conditions, mental health and behaviours that challenge. We also look to work with organisations in crisis or those wishing to devise and implement strategies for change.

"The feedback we have received following Richards training and seminars has been amazing. People have asked when he will be returning as they would like more of this very practical but evidence based information. Richard is very easy to work with and understands his audience. Can’t recommend this training highly enough."

Sharon Paley: Director Clinical Innovation and Governance, Government of Queensland, Australia 

"Fantastically helpful. A really useful workshop, much to collectively follow up on, thank you
Great to hear feedback from academic studies. Excellent day, very informative. Great plans and ideas that can be taken forward."

"Synergy works because it looks to create the optimum physical, sensory, communication and social environment for the child rather than focusing solely on changing the child’s behaviour."  

Laskaridis Foundation, Greece.

  "The participants spoke very highly of the workshop and I enjoyed myself immensely. It is a really interesting, sustainable and empowering concept. The presentation was super, one never knows enough! Thank you Richard and Michael"  

Dr Rita Micalef, Inspire Foundation, Government of Malta and University of Malta.

"Richard was a very generous and excellent presenter who provided a very good and broad overview of autism and interventions. He was happy to share and discuss his wealth of knowledge, experience, and values base; and was responsive to the various needs and interests of the audience. Richard provided an excellent reminder of the use of strengths and sound clinical judgement in being appropriate and effective in our work with people with autism."

Murray Rieck: Senior Clinician, Clinical Innovation and Governance, Government of Queensland, Australia
