Supporting individuals with autism
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people around them. According to the National Autistic Society, autism affects about 700,000 people in the United Kingdom, which equates to 1 in 100 of the population and the number of children being diagnosed with the condition is continuing to increase.
This Autism Awareness course will touch on what factors contribute towards a child developing autism, as well as some of the typical behaviours associated with it, and how you can provide effective support for those with the condition.
It also discusses what happens during the diagnosis process, some of the intervention methods that can help manage the condition and suggests some simple adaptations you can make to improve a child with autism's day-to-day life.
Special education and autism
This course would be ideal for people working in adult and child care environments. Those working in all areas of care may come into contact with people who have Autistic Spectrum Disorders ASD.
