Understanding Autism - Online Accredited Course

This course will enable you to learn all about ‘Autism’ and what is meant by this. We are going to look more deeply into Autism, so that we can hopefully recognise the signs and symptoms in order to make a judgement call and be able to support our children, a friend, a family member, employee, colleague or ourselves, by knowing what coping strategies are available.

Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a condition that means your brain works in a different way. It is not an illness and is not something that needs medical intervention. ASC is also known as a ‘social’ disorder or disability and can include rigid behaviour, cognitive delays and also sensory processing disorder where a person can have difficulty processing information from others. This course will teach you all of this and more.

Course Overview

Course Aim:

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.
