Hearth Support Services Team Deepens Their Understanding of Autism Through Training

At Hearth Support Services, we are dedicated to providing our team with the tools they need to succeed. That’s why we recently undertook a training workshop on autism, developed by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect). This workshop is part of our ongoing commitment to the personal and professional development of our employees.

We recognize that learning opportunities are essential for career growth and to better understand and support the community we serve. April was autism awareness month, and we thought it was the perfect time to offer an in-depth look at autism. Our training workshop provided practical insights and knowledge to help us better support people with autism and their families.

Our training workshop was developed with the team’s needs in mind, and we are confident that it has equipped the Hearth team with valuable skills and knowledge that will benefit them both personally and professionally.

The key content the training workshop focused on

  • Autism and supports – what is autism, neurodiversity, and autism, understanding autism.
  • Good practice principles – visual supports, increase structure & organisation, physical structure.
  • Understanding your participant
  • Quality of life – strategies, person centred planning, active support

Team members who participated in the training workshop described it as informative, fantastic, invaluable, great, and amazing! We are proud of our team’s dedication to learning and their passion for making a positive impact in the lives of those we support.

We value our employees and are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment that fosters growth, learning, and professional development. By investing in our team, we believe that we can better serve our clients and make a meaningful difference in the community.

Join us at Hearth Support Services and be part of a team that is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of people with disability.
