About the course

South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) worked with Health Education England, third sector organisations, subject matter experts and experts by experience on this national 12 month project to identify and share a range of approaches to support health, social care and public facing workforces across England to use the Core Capabilities Framework for Supporting Autistic People (2019) 

The project involved a mixed methods design and included a national online survey, delphi survey, focus groups and interviews. This helped us review current evidence and practice, to mapping existing initiatives against the framework, and creating a repository of information for people to develop their work further in this area. As part of the project, we also wanted to find out how people use the Core Capability Framework and share a range of approaches to support all health, care and public facing workforces across England to effectively make use of it and other relevant frameworks to help support autistic people their family and carers. 

We’re excited to be have made great progress and be able to present the findings of our project providing case study examples and testimonies from autistic people their family and/or carers. 

This workshop will provide an overview of the project including: 

  • The overall project (what we did) 
  • Main findings and recommendations (what we found) 
  • An autism training directory (what training we found) 
  • A gap analysis (what gaps we found) 
  • Systematic review (what evidence we found) 
  • Delphi survey (what experts think) 
  • Repository of resources (where to find these documents)

The fusion of Education and the Health Service is extremely exciting and now indeed essential; I am thrilled that St Mary’s is at the forefront of this. I am truly invigorated to disseminate many nuggets of wisdom and tangible strategies gained yesterday to my entire school community.

The knowledge and skills help children in many areas e.g. friendships, learning, attitude, dealing with problems at home and school. Skills will stay with them as they progress helping them to be reflective and emotionally resilient.
