The Autism Centre was founded in 2017.
We work with many students who have an interest in autism. Our founder, who completed the MAPP Programme at Bucks New University – is currently undertaking a PhD at Sheffield Hallam University Autism Centre, and he manages the Autism and SEND Training Service for POINT SEND as well as leading the Autism Training Sub-group for Oldham Local Authority.
The Autism Centre is currently researching the following topics:
- Courage and Autism
- Developmental delay
- Difference not deficit: A strength-based model
- Co-productive approach to language, policy and practice within a care / service environment
- Policies, drivers and levers
- Regulated Practice Diploma for SEND (Development stages of OFQUAL application)
