Embracing Autism Acceptance Through Education: NEDDE TRAINING’s Mission






Today, we want to shine a light on a very special day that means the world to us and many others - World Autism Acceptance Day, celebrated on 2 April. It’s a day dedicated not just to recognising autism but to embracing and accepting the diverse ways people experience the world around them.


Here at NEDDE TRAINING, we’re passionate about playing our part in this global movement through education and training. We believe knowledge is the key to opening doors to understanding and acceptance for individuals with autism. It’s about recognising the beauty in our differences and learning how to support each other in meaningful ways.


Autism brings a spectrum of experiences, including unique challenges with eating. For some individuals with autism, navigating the world of food isn’t just about likes and dislikes. It can involve sensory sensitivities where certain textures or flavours feel overwhelming, or it might be about finding comfort in routine, eating the same foods every day. Additionally, individuals on the autism spectrum might face challenges with eating disorders or disordered eating patterns. These can range from difficulties in maintaining a balanced diet to more complex conditions that require professional support and understanding.


That’s where NEDDE TRAINING steps in. Our aim is to equip professionals with the knowledge and skills to understand these nuances. Our training sessions explore the reasons behind these eating challenges and, importantly, how to approach them with empathy and effective strategies. It’s not just about addressing the ‘what’ but understanding the ‘why’ and working on the ‘how’ to provide support that resonates on a personal level.


Through our efforts, we aspire to make a significant difference in the lives of neurodivergent individuals. It’s about creating a bridge of empathy and support between professionals and those on the autism spectrum, especially when it comes to addressing the complexities of eating disorders. This understanding can transform lives, offering a sense of being understood and supported in ways that matter most.


World Autism Acceptance Day is a reminder of the importance of our mission. It’s a call to action for all of us to learn more, to do more, and to be more accepting of the diverse tapestry of human experiences. At NEDDE TRAINING, we’re committed to this cause, championing autism acceptance and understanding every day, one training session at a time.
