    About this course - Autism Understanding and Awareness

    Autism is a spectrum condition, and through this course you will begin to develop an understanding of the developmental differences an autistic person may have as well as turning our thinking to how this developmental profile may influence how an autistic person communicates, thinks and understands the social world.

    Course objectives are:

    • To understand what autism is, and introduce autism as a developmental difference and how our thinking has involved
