This course is insurable, accredited or approved by the professional bodies, Thinktree, World Metaphysical Association, The Accreditation Council of Holistic Healers (ACHH).
The aim of this course is to learn about ‘Autism’ and what is meant by this. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is considered to be the broad term for autism, but there are actually three main subtypes that fit within this. These are: Autistic Disorder (AD), Asperger’s Syndrome and Pervasive Development Disorder.
This course will look into Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as the main subtypes, so that you will get an overall understanding about what is meant when we use the word ‘Autism’ and also how we can support a person who has been diagnosed with autism or who has autistic tendencies, making sure we are using a person-centred approach.
This course will give you a good, all round understanding of Autism, enabling you to recognise concerns and also identify where we can make changes to support a person and ensure that coping strategies are available.
