This training aims to provide key autism awareness for all practitioners working with children and young people on the autism spectrum. It focuses on understanding individual children, their strengths, and differences within the context of autism.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate awareness of the following:

  • Raise awareness of Autism Spectrum Condition.
  • Develop a shared understanding of some of the challenges that children with autism face.
