You focus on the person-centred support of service users and apply supportive interventions and strategies in ways that build upon previous study and employment/practice experiences. You advance your knowledge and understanding of autism spectrum conditions, enabling you to develop your knowledge of the discipline of specialist autism practice. You apply theories and constructs related to autism in a workplace setting in order to make sense of complex situations and enhance your skills development through action or problem-based projects and practical experience. The course facilitates the development of leading change and service improvement, developing services to meet diverse needs of people with autism, underpinned by a sound ethical framework.
An Honours degree at 2.2 and above in a related field, however, applicants with non-standard entry requirements are considered on an individual basis. You must also show evidence of recent study.
Core modules: Advancing practice when working with people with autism spectrum conditions; designing research projects; evidence-based practice; service improvement for autism spectrum conditions.
Each module has individual assessment strategies, including student presentation, case studies, written reflection based on practice, essays, reports, research proposal and dissertation.
