There are still a great many misconceptions around autism. Autism is not an illness but autistic brains do work differently to neuro-typical ones. This course will explain how this impacts a persons life, and how you can better support a person with autism.
Autism and ASD Awareness
Autism and autistic spectrum disorder are multi-faceted conditions which can affect a person's ability to communicate, socialise and process information. Understanding what life looks like through an autistic lens can help staff form stronger relationships with their service users and give them the confidence to know how to respond in more challenging situations.
