Capabilities Statement for social work with autistic adults - Implementation resources

Toolkits for social workers, organisations, people with lived experience and educators

These implementation resources support social workers, organisations, people with lived experience and higher education institutions to implement the Capabilities Statement and continuous professional development (CPD) pathway for social work with autistic adults.

The resources have been developed with the support of a cross-sector Advisory Group, including people with lived experience, social workers and educators.

The resources include:

  • a practice toolkit for social workers: including reflection tools, top tips, video featuring Sylvia Stanway an autistic adult and parent, plus easy read material
  • a toolkit for autistic adults: including resources that explain the role of the social worker, a feedback tool and easy read material
  • a self-evaluation tool for organisations
  • a post-graduate curriculum outline for higher education institutions, including how to develop a modular, blended learning approach.
