Understanding Autism as a Developmental Difference:
This course aims to further develop participants' understanding of autism as a developmental difference. It will deepen understanding of typical and atypical development and explore what is meant by a spiky/uneven developmental profile in autism. The course will also explore the brain and emotional development and how we and others may respond to stress, in particular how autistic people may respond to this. Participants will also look at how their understanding of a person’s developmental profile will inform practice moving forwards.
