"Online learning is a great way to access information."
On this page you'll find a selection of Autism talks and Autism training courses on various topics related to Autism, Autistic Identity and Neurodiversity by both myself and others I have chosen to work with.
All my Autism training courses are aimed at validating Autistic experience and being a supportive learning tool for Autistic people, family members and supporters of Autistic people; and also Professionals.
If you choose to learn from me, and the other Autistic trainers I work alongside, you can expect to be honestly and directly challenged.

What is the Inside of Autism Membership?
The Inside of Autism Membership is based on the sell-out, live training Kieran has delivered to over 3000 people around the world.
Instead of a live round (which lasts only 7 weeks) you can now take a whole year to reframe your understanding of the Autism narrative and join Kieran for 12 live Q&A sessions on Zoom.
What's the difference between this and other Autism courses?
Most Autism training is stereotypical, wrapped up in non-Autistic behaviourally-based perspectives and incredibly deficit focused and ultimately useless. It doesn't have any meaning.
The Inside of Autism strips back those stereotypes, provides insight from multiple Autistic perspectives, is grounded in up-to-date research; and shifts from a centred non-Autistic viewpoint to an Autistic one.
What's different between this version and the public course?
The private version of The inside of Autism is for groups and organisations.
For a fixed priced you will get exactly the same training as the public course, but you will receive 1-2-1 time with Kieran to focus on your organisation or group's specific needs, helping you meet the needs of your employees and/or services users.
Your 1-2-1 time can include Q&As and discussion regarding the course content or organisational consultancy including how to incorporate knowledge from the training into practice, how to build inclusive policies around new knowledge and ongoing support with current practice.
What your organisation/group receives:
This is a one-off training session delivered by Jodie Smitten and Kieran Rose.

In this training session Kieran looks at the history of the Asperger's label and why it has been removed from the DSM diagnostic criteria and the future ICD-11. This session recognises the validity of the label to those who have it, but highlights its problematic nature and the impact it has had.
This concise but valuable training is useful for Autistic people, Professionals and parents in helping to navigate a large aspect of the confusing mess of labels we all have to pick through, as well as shining a light on the impact of labels.
