Supporting People with Autism


Price is per online user of this course. EU applicable VAT added.

This e-learning course, Supporting People with Autism, is broken down into four easy-to-follow units – an introduction and three study units. It explains what autism spectrum conditions are, the impact they have and how people with autism differ from others in the way they make sense of the world.

The course identifies some of the common difficulties that autistic people experience and suggests techniques for helping them to overcome these on a day-to-day basis. Learners will then be able to use this information to provide people in their care with the appropriate support and guidance according to their needs.
