Staffordshire FA, in partnership with Liberty Staffordshire, will be delivering a ‘Raising awareness of autism in football in Staffordshire’ CPD workshop to be delivered to volunteers within the grassroots game both within mainstream & disability football (from club/ league committee members to coaches/managers).
The workshop will cover an understanding of Autism, the autistic spectrum, social communication, repetitive behaviours, considerations e.g. marketing & promotion, policies & best practice on how clubs can be inclusive of players with autism.
Details of this season are as followed:
Wednesday 5th October 2022, 6.30pm till 9.30pm
Stafford Town FC, ST16 3TL
Last month we held a successful pilot workshop for this, with great ideas, discussions and next steps, so are now looking to roll this workshop out this season across the county.
