Autism Workshops for Professionals
Our popular and very practical Autism workshops take place in central venues across Scotland. Details of our upcoming workshops can be found here
We can also come to your establishment to provide training. We train schools, nurseries, out of school care, holiday clubs, sports coaches and other businesses and organisations. Basically, if you are going to be supporting a child or adult with Autism or if you are likely to have Autistic customers use your business, then you would benefit from our training.

We are delighted to have our 2nd mention in the Scottish Parliament within a year! Colin Beattie MSP Midlothian North & Musselburgh, wrote to us congratulating us on receiving funding from the Social Entrepreneurs Fund and for the huge success of the Steps Family Pathway Project! The motion was lodged on the 5th of May and can be seen on the Scottish Parliament website.
Here is a little clip from the Siblings group and more info about the project!
Our Steps Family Pathway project, funded by the
Scottish Government, was hailed a huge success by all who attended. The project included parent workshops, parent resource drop-in sessions and a siblings group. Watch our siblings having fun in the clip above! Families could choose to take part in all, or just some of the groups and sessions.
The sessions ran throughout the month of March and were held in Musselburgh. They were open to families living in East Lothian, Midlothian and South/East Edinburgh who have a child with an autism spectrum condition.

Steps to Inclusion - increasing the inclusion and acceptance in society of Autistic and Dyslexic individuals
"79% (of autistic people surveyed in Scotland) think that public understanding of autism is poor or very poor."
(NAS Count Us In Campaign, 2013)
Steps to Inclusion is a social enterprise, based in Scotland, who are passionate about raising awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Condition and Dyslexia.
We work with schools, businesses, families, education establishments and community groups.
We deliver pupil workshops and staff training and develop educational resources for primary and secondary schools.
We believe that children, young people and adults with Autism Spectrum Condition and/or Dyslexia should be given a voice. We work collaboratively with other organisations to ensure that our work is informed by the views and experiences of both the Autism and Dyslexia communities.
