The AuTrain project helps to promote the necessary European framework for improving the situation of people with ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder – through the use of innovative digital learning solutions.

The AuTrain project aims to improve the situation of people with ASD. To this end, the project team is collecting comprehensive material on autism, its forms and characteristics in order to raise awareness of people with ASD. For this purpose, an online platform is being developed which contains information about ASD. In addition, the platform will contain all the necessary teaching and training measures that are necessary for the further education course “Autism Officer / Autism Officer”. This extended training is the main result of AuTrain.

The additional professional qualification “Autism Officer / Autism Support Officer” will be accredited by an external body and ISO 17024 certified. The certification of the training forms the basis for the long-term sustainability of the project. Free access to the AuTrain platform ensures that all documents can be used by various organisations even after the end of the project.

The project team, which consists of necessary experts in various fields, is responsible for planning and implementing this comprehensive set of results. These include various universities and educational institutions that bring experience of people with ASD. FH JOANNEUM’s Institute of Internet Technologies & Applications is responsible for the development of the online platform and ensures the highest level of user-friendliness and didactic quality.
