This introductory course is designed for anyone wishing to understand more about autism. It is suitable for anyone who supports autistic children; young people; and adults (not in an education setting) in a variety of contexts. The course explores what autism is; and looks at the concepts of neurodiversity and the autism spectrum; as well as some common misconceptions. Learners will understand that autistic individuals share common areas of difference; but have their own profile of strengths and challenges.
