Sheffield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 16, 2008 -- Two Sheffield training companies have teamed up to raise awareness of a little known disability. Aspergers Syndrome is a disability on the autism spectrum.
Sharp End Training have teamed up with the Asperger Training company and âAspergers Awarenessâ is an online training course featuring essential knowledge for employers and anyone in business or business support.
The course features easy to navigate screens, user interaction and high quality photographs & illustrations.
For a limited period, a trial of this online course is available completely free of charge.
The trial features just a sample of the screens available in the full course. Topics include guidance on aspergers & mental health and essential information for employers who may employ someone with this misunderstood condition.
Asperger Training Company Director Jayne Dore said âThis online training will help people with little or no knowledge of Asperger Syndrome to better understand what it is like to cope with having it on a daily basis. Aspergers is a misunderstood condition and people with a diagnosis are underused in our society. The course will redress this balance and help promote diversity and understandingâ
Sharp End Training Director Jonathan Senior said âWe were delighted when Jayne asked us to work with her. She is clearly one of the leading experts on Aspergers in Yorkshire, if not the UK. One of the aims of Sharp End Training is to push back the boundaries of learning. By putting this material online, it is much more accessible and hopefully, more people will benefitâ
Jayne Dore added âSharp End Training were an obvious choice. Jonathan and his team show and uncanny knack of making complex terms easy to understandâ

There is a greater risk of depression in people with AS
