This course provides an overview for those who, as part of their work or family life, occasionally support individuals affected by autism. The focus of the course is to raise awareness and educate individuals, so enabling a better understanding of the condition and how it affects those on the autism spectrum.

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.
