Autism (Children)

This is a programme designed for professionals working with children and young people on the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome; this might be the early years, in schools, residential care, or in advisory, support or therapeutic services. The programme draws on the student's own experience as part of the content and assessment. The prgramme gives students knowledge of the autism spectrum, based on theory, research and practice. It develops skills in identifying and meeting the needs of these children and improving the student's awareness of different approaches and models of service delivery (particularly in the area of education); taking the perspective of the child on the autism spectrum is paramount, and listening to families and what they need and value is also stressed.
