  • About This Course

    The Autism Awareness course aims to develop your understanding of the diverse condition of autism and gives practical suggestions when working with autistic individuals.

    Autism refers to a whole range of social, language and communication issues. Severity ranges from mild and often undiagnosed to severe, where it is almost impossible for people to successfully engage in society.

    The aim of this course is to provide a better awareness of the term “autism” and “autistic spectrum disorder” (ASD) and how to support individuals with autism.
