Autism is much more common than many people think. There are around 700,000 people on the autistic spectrum in the UK, more than 1 in 100. This means that, including families, autism affects 2.8m people.
But, despite the high number of individuals that are likely to have the condition, many of us have a poor understanding of autism and what it actually means for both the individual and those who work and live with them.
This is a three-module online autism awareness course containing information on autism diagnoses, how the condition impacts the individual on a day-to-day basis and the challenges autism presents to people who work with or care for people with autism.
The course will look at key issues such as the autistic spectrum, the causes of autism, autism and social communication issues, autism and body language, facial expressions and tone of voice, mind blindness, sensory issues, coping methods and the positives of autism.
This course is helpful for anyone working with, or likely to work with, people on the autistic spectrum or those interested in human development. It’s also useful for parents, carers or friends of people with autistic spectrum disorders.
You will automatically get a course certificate on course completion, containing your name, CPD hours, date and learning objectives.
This course is aimed at anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of autism and how it affects individuals and those around them. It contains useful knowledge for anyone working in health and social care as well as teaching assistants or anyone wanting to move into these areas or develop their career.
