Over 700,000 people in the UK have autism, meaning that 2.8 million people have a relative on the autism spectrum. Lack of understanding of the condition makes individuals with autism and their families susceptible to isolation and mental health conditions. Therefore, it is crucial that those who work or want to work in the health and social care sector develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of autism. Not only will this help to give individuals with autism access to the support they need, but it will also contribute to dispelling the myths that exist about the condition.
This course will equip learners with a strong knowledge of autism, including how to support individuals with the condition, the relevant legislative framework, the therapeutic interventions available and safeguarding responsibilities.
