'Autism Aware' Certification

Welcome to the Autism Aware Certification Scheme. In this section you will find an introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorders and some advice about how you can help.

There are two elements to this scheme: viewing our “What is Autism?” training film; and accessing the e-learning resources, where you can download the PowerPoint or PDF at the bottom of this page.

Who is the “What is Autism?” training film for?

The film has been designed to raise awareness and understanding of autism.

The National Autism Team have worked to keep their resources and language updated and current to reflect what autistic people would like neurotypicals to understand about autism, and the updating of the scheme is one example of this.

What is this film about?

The film follows three autistic people – Amara Tamblyn, Rhiannon Lloyd-Williams and Osian Harries – as they explore what their autism means to them, including: social communication; patterns and routines; sensory experience; and how to make things better.

It also includes the professional voice of Dr Elin Walker Jones, consultant Psychologist.



The scheme rewards those who undertake some learning about Autism, and is aimed at people of all ages and abilities.

After viewing these resources you will be asked to enter your details. This information will be used to monitor the uptake of the scheme across Wales within businesses, organisations and services.

After entering your details, you will be asked to answer a series of 20 questions. If you are successful in answering all 20 questions correctly, a personalised certificate will be created for you to download. If you enter an incorrect answer, you will be given the opportunity to try again.
