About the Course
Why do we have such a hard time understanding why some people with autism can excel in fields that others might think of as not being able to do? The truth is, having an ASD can come with a range of strengths and challenges affecting your learning, thinking and problem-solving.
With this course, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the different types of autism, its impact on someone's life and how they experience the world around them. You'll also learn about the latest research on ASD and what it means for your child or loved one.
When we think of autism, we usually imagine a child unable to communicate or relate with others. But autism can also affect children and adults of any age. This course will take you on a journey through the spectrum of autism and teach you everything you need to know about it. From understanding what it is to its causes and symptoms, this course will give you a deeper understanding of ASD so that you can recognise the signs and symptoms in your child or friend so that they can get the help they need. In addition, this course will cover life skills such as communication, socialisation, sensory processing and thinking skills.
