Kelly Hogan, Trio Sci Cymru Administrator, Cardiff University
‘I found the AP Cymru Autism training extremely useful for gaining up to date information about Autism and learning how to communicate effectively with Autistic children and young adults in order to encourage them to attend university. I also learnt how we can adapt our services and offerings to better suit their needs. Karen and Donna were a joy to spend time with and their openness and honesty about their own experiences was admirable. They left me feeling positive that I had the knowledge to help and support autistic individuals through my role in the future.’
Linda Smith, First Campus Co-ordinator, Cardiff Metropolitan University
‘Really insightful and valuable training. You are so generous in sharing your knowledge and personal experiences, highly recommend to HE colleagues’.
Sian Catley, Senior First Campus Officer, Cardiff University
‘I thoroughly enjoyed the training from AP Cymru in January. Our team works with autistic children and young adults as part of one of our projects to reduce barriers into higher education. To have more of an understanding on how to engage with the participants is invaluable in ensuring we are offering them the right support and advice to progress. Both Karen and Donna were incredibly honest about their own experiences, and the humour they brought to the training meant you weren’t afraid to ask questions!
Helena Fern, First Campus Co-ordinator, Cardiff University
‘I really enjoyed the training session and learning more about the experiences of people who are autstic. There was a lot of valuable information that we can use in our events to make them more accessible. Thank you AP Cymru, particularly Donna and Karen, we will definitely be in touch to work together again in the future!’
