Course Description

Autism is a diverse and mystifying condition that has been the focus of much research over the last few decades. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability, that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, as well as how they experience the world around them.

Autism is described as a spectrum condition, meaning that, while all autistic people share certain difficulties, they are affected in different ways. Some autistic people are able to live relatively independent lives, while others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support. People on the autism spectrum may also experience over- or under-sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light or colours.

According to the National Autistic Society, there are approximately seven hundred thousand (700,000) people in the United Kingdom with autism, meaning more than one in one hundred have the condition. Overall it effects over two and a half million people each day, which includes the families of affected individuals.

People from all nationalities and backgrounds can be autistic, although it appears to affect more men than women. It is a lifelong condition, with autistic children growing up to become autistic adults.

This Autism Awareness course provides a practical and informative exploration into autism, aiming to develop an understanding of the condition and providing practical suggestions for working with autistic individuals.

The course will explore:

  • why autism is a spectrum disorder and the related 'Triad of Impairments'
  • the behaviours, signs and symptoms typically associated with autism
  • the range of approaches, strategies, interventions and services available to help, support and treat those with autism.
