Autism School Training

Education is central to the work of AsIAm, Ireland’s National Autism Charity. In this section, you will find information on the school talks which AsIAm deliver for school staff, students and parents. This is not to be confused with our more in-depth and long-term Autism Friendly Schools programme, which you can learn about here.

We have three types of talks from our expert training team.

Staff Training

Building Autism Understanding & Awareness

90 mins online or 2 hours onsite

Suitable for primary and secondary level staff. These participation-based workshops build toward an inclusive school culture.

Student Workshop / Whole-School Talk

Deveops empathy and awareness in second-level pupils.

1 hour onsite

Our student talks build toward fostering empathy and awareness amongst young people. Small or large groups.

Parents / Guardians Talk

Autism Awareness & Understanding

90 mins online or onsite

Aims to build empathy and understanding for autistic pupils and their families


AsIAm does not receive specific funding for this programme and demand for delivery of our education programmes is high. Consequently, there is a fee for hosting a workshop. We aim to make our costing competitive with other educational training companies – noting that our training programmes fund our advocacy and community support work for autistic people and their families.

AsIAm as an organisation is acutely conscious of each student’s individual rights. We are governed by policies relating to the safety of children, vulnerable persons and data protection.  For this reason, certain protocols are in place for our speakers and the school that they visit, which will be discussed further when booking a speaker from AsIAm.


If you would like to book an AsIAm trainer to deliver one or more of our school programmes, please fill out this online booking form and one of our trainers will contact you directly.
