Autism Awareness  – CPD Training

Health Education England has developed the Oliver McGowan learning disability and autism training programme. The barriers to eye care in these  patients are well understood, and this training provides useful knowledge for optical practice staff.

SeeAbility is delivering Tier 1 training to optical professionals and non-clinical practice staff, including reception and optical assistant colleagues. Reception staff is usually the first point of contact but may be unaware of how the sight test can be made accessible including to patients who cannot access the letter chart.

There are two parts to Tier 1 training:

1. Complete E-Learning on The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training On Learning Disabilities & Autism before you attend the webinar.

2. Attend the live 1 hour webinar (which has 1 interactive CPD point for registered professionals).
The webinar is delivered by a trio of trainers, including trainers with lived experience of learning disabilities and autism.
