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 course will give learners an introduction and awareness of autism. It is aimed at people who want to understand and make a difference in the lives of individuals with the autism spectrum condition, including carers, professionals and those working in a role where they regularly interact with the public.
