Welcome to the Support 2 independence staff learning zone.
This is a resource to give staff with the opportunity to explore topics relevant to the people we support and our work. The aim is to allow staff to develop their skills and knowledge in their own time, in areas which interest them.
Where possible learning will be accredited and a certificate of achievement will be provided.
S2i supports approximately 40 autistic people and we are accredited with the National Autistic society. Currently S2i provides two autism courses for staff.
Supporting people with Autism
Advanced working with Autism.
In this section you will find a workbook designed to complement those courses. The workbook has information about Autism, how it affects people and how we can support autistic people to have a good quality of life and achieve their hopes and ambitions.
The workbook is a PDF so you can download it and read through it at your own pace. There are assessments of what we have learned throughout the workbook and if you like, you can print these out and complete them. If you would like a certificate of achievement send the assessments with your name on them to the Lodge marked for the attention of Paula McCabe.
If you would rather have a paper copy of the workbook just ask your Manager.
You can also email your completed assessments to the Lodge at firstname.lastname@example.org
