Autism is a lifelong developmental disability which can affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact socially with other people.
Whilst those on the autistic spectrum may share some common impairments it is a very individualised disability meaning people will experience autism very differently.
This session provides an introduction to the autistic spectrum and the triad of impairments allowing learners to explore and develop an understanding of the challenges faced by both children and adults living with autism and how to respond to the needs of children and adults on the autism spectrum. Guiding those working with individuals living with autism to deliver good practice care and support services whilst meeting the individual needs of individuals and their families.
This course is suitable for anyone wanting to develop a general awareness and understanding of autism. It is relevant for both those who support children or adults on the autism spectrum.
Participants will be helped to make the link between theoretical knowledge and practice through activities which allow them to experience a small part of living with autism or a spectrum disorder. The course places emphasis on reflective practice and examination of the participant’s skills, attitudes and communication style. It makes use of presentation, group discussion and tasking, self-directed learning and audio or visual aids providing a wide range of learning materials to support the learners’ experience of the session.
