Autistic spectrum disorder affects both communication and behaviour. While diagnosis can happen at any stage in life, it is often referred to as a developmental disorder, as it often shows signs fairly early on, and can be the cause of some emotional immaturities for some learners. We use the word spectrum because of the wide range of symptoms children with ASD can experience. This course will explore this wide range of variations and identify ways of working with individuals to support their development as well-rounded learners.
This course is for everyone who wants to understand more about Autistic Spectrum Disorder and the impact it can have on our learners. We will explore the theoretical underpinning and signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as practical strategies to support students with ASD. There will be ample opportunities to discuss the application of strategies in your own context.
This course is appropriate for primary, secondary and special schools.
