Section 1: What is Autism?

In the opening section of this course, we look at what autism is, terminology surrounding autism, types of autism, the spectrum, and behaviours.

Section 2: Living with Autism

In this final section of the course, we look at what life is like living with autism and how it may be impacted by certain workplaces.

About this course

Autism is a term that describes an entire spectrum of developmental conditions that affect a person's communication and perception of the world in a number of unique ways. Despite the fact that this condition has been researched widely across the world, what we know about it is constantly evolving, and the knowledge we have today differs significantly from what we thought we knew 20 years ago.

It’s important to note that autism is not an illness or a learning disability. You simply need to understand it as a different way of experiencing the world.

This course can help your staff gain a better understanding of autism and what adjustments can be made to the workplace to better accommodate those with autism.

A concise but useful training course

Each section was well presented with key points highlighted at the end. Good factual points were included as well as explanations as to how to discuss autism and the challenges that autistic people might face in their lives and in the workplace. Being aware of these will help me to have better interactions in the future. Understanding how autistic people might want to refer to themselves and recognising when things might be getting tough were also vey useful.

Very informative

I hate these training sessions but at least you can drop in and out and try to focus on what you’re supposed to be learning about. Has it helped me? Well it’s stressed me out even though I passed and taken me back to my school days . Personally I feel that hands on experience works for me.

made me aware than i was about Autism.
