Understanding Autism, Award (Online)
This flexible online course is designed for those who work with or have contact with individuals on the autism spectrum. This course will help you to understand more about the impact it can have on an individual’s day-to-day life and how to support them.
You will learn about what Autism is, how it is diagnosed and how it can affect the way an individual interacts and communicates with others. You will also explore strategies to support individuals with autism with routine tasks and through key life events.
You are able to study this course online to fit around home and work commitments but with the support and expertise of a qualified online tutor.
The course will commence with a welcome webinar to give you an opportunity to meet your tutor and find out about how to access and navigate the system. Following this, the course can be accessed remotely through the digital platform with course materials, lessons and resources available to access at any time.
There are two further scheduled webinars throughout the course which provide you with an opportunity to discuss topics with your tutor and class, whilst allowing the tutors to personalise the course to your needs.
