Target Autism Training and Consultancy Ltd

Target Autism was established in 2012 by Ron Fortuna and Angela Capper. We both had worked previously for the local authority’s autism support team and have over twenty years of experience in the field of autism education. We offer a range of services to help assist professionals and parents who deal with people that have an autism spectrum condition. Our work includes support and training for school staff, care homes, council workers, transportation staff and parents. We work in conjunction with paediatricians and educational psychologists to assist with the diagnostic process for young people. We carry out observations on students and offer schools advice in order to help all parties to progress from problematic issues that may stem from an underlying autism condition.
