We have worked in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council since 2006 and have subsequently trained an average of 100 key staff, carers and professionals per year; including social workers, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, front line staff and parents. Our 5 day Diploma in Understanding & Managing ADHD, Aspergers & High Functioning Autism (HFA) has been proven to be a massive success in relation to transforming lives and providing large financial savings.
The success of the training is evident directly and indirectly. Over the past 5 years staff have been able to provide a high quality service to adults with Asperger Syndrome and supporting evidence also shows that this has saved the County considerable amounts of money. The improvement to some clients lives has been considerable, they no longer require residential support and have moved to supported living; which in turn has an impact on funding. There are now also cases where clients have reduced services completely therefore not costing HCC at all.
