Autism is a diverse and mystifying condition and has been the focus of much scientific research over the last few decades.  The Autism Awareness course aims to increase your understanding of autism and gives practical suggestions when working with autistic individuals.

Today, autism refers to a wide range of social, language and communication problems.  Severity ranges from hardly there at all, often undiagnosed and even unrecognised, to severe, where it is virtually impossible for people to participate in society.

There are no boundaries between the conditions Kanner and Asperger identified, often people are in-between, whether in between Asperger’s syndrome and Kanner’s, or in between “normal” and Asperger’s syndrome. Therefore, collectively we refer to “autistic spectrum disorder”, or ASD, as this allows for the differences in both symptoms and severity. A person without ASD is called a neuro-typical.

This course will enable you to become familiar with various different approaches to autism, have increased awareness of how to obtain a diagnosis and enable you to understand genetic environmental causes of autism. The Autism Awareness Certificate will also explain how research in other conditions can help research into autism.
