Online Autism Awareness course will give you the necessary information to understand what autism is, what contributes to its development, and some of the behaviors associated with it. It will also explore the diagnosis process, treatments available to manage it, as well as simple adjustments you can make to better someone’s day-to-day life who has autism.
Autism is a lifelong disability that impacts how individuals communicate and relate to those around them. According to the National Autistic Society, about 700,000 people in the United Kingdom – that’s 1 in every 100 – have autism and the number of children being diagnosed is rising.
This program is most beneficial for professionals or those who work with adults and/or children in a care environment. Knowledge of autism and how best to care for someone with ASD will be helpful regardless of who they interact with or support.
Gaining an understanding of typical behaviors and challenges related to ASD makes recognizing them easier and enables more effective support. Additionally, since this course is approved for CPD (Continuing Professional Development) training, it can be used by anyone needing evidence of self-development. As it is online as well, candidates can do the training at their own pace and in their own time – making it even more convenient!
In addition to this program, our health & social care suite offers many courses which could be beneficial in furthering your learning. Directly related topics include Introduction to Early Years Foundation Stage, Equality & Diversity, and Mental Health Awareness.
