Autism Training Academy supports and inspires our accomplished clients to expand their knowledge of autism and neurodiversity while giving them tools they can utilize to support all individuals in their particular environment. We make this possible through a variety of concise, online, asynchronous micro-trainings founded on research, gamification, and a Universal Design evidence-based framework that gives our client’s concrete skills and tools to actualize their learning. Autism Training Academy provides our clients seamless, interactive, cost-effective, learning experiences that prioritize their learning needs while recognizing the value of their time. As a result, our clients lead the way in their field of practice and inform future best practice through their commitment to inclusion.
Our Academy was founded by Dr. TC Waisman who is an Autistic, Indigenous Pasifika, South Asian, and East Asian person. She was diagnosed at 48-years-old and as a result, returned to formal education to attain her doctoral degree in leadership, policy, and governance with a research that focused on how higher education leaders, faculty members, and professional staff can enhance services and outcomes for Autistic students in higher education. As a result of her research findings, Dr. Waisman set out to develop a series of micro-trainings to bring much needed education about autism and neurodiversity to those who are already centred to affect change in their communities of practice and those who live in praxis with their value for inclusive best practice.
Every micro-training course is designed in conjunction with subject-matter-experts in each particular field of practice to ensure it is relevant, based on research, and loaded with tools and skills that can be transferred into practice immediately. Micro-trainings are approximately 1 hour in length and are interactive for the learner. Upon completion of the badged micro-trainings, the learner will receive an e-badge that can be used on their CV, social business site, website etc.
