It also discusses what happens during the diagnosis process, some of the intervention methods that can help manage the condition. Suggestions are also made for some simple adaptations you can make to improve a child with autism’s day to day life.

This course is ideal for people working in adult and child care environments. It’s also prefect for those working in all areas of care may come into contact with people who has Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Although the course focuses on children with autism, having an awareness of the condition and how best to provide support to someone with ASD will be of use to anyone who interacts with and cares for children and adults as part of their work.
