About the Autism Centre

The Autism Centre was founded in 2017.

It is run by the Positive Psychology Guild which is a Not for Profit Organisation and a government registered learning provider with a UK Provider Reference Number: 10067939. We are also a CPD certified Provider dedicated to raising the standards of training and continuing professional development.

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.

We are proud to partner with the Positive Psychology Academy on the delivery of the Level 3 Certificate in Neurodiversity & Inclusion (Train the Trainer) and Level 5 Diploma in Autism Awareness for Managers & Practitioners. The Academy also oversees the quality assurance for our NICE Kitemark training.

We are also proud to say that our centre is led by autistic individuals and our team is neurodiverse. We practice what what we teach when it comes to neurodiversity and inclusion at work!

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
