Why this course?

Receiving a diagnosis of autism for a child, sibling or family member can be a confusing time. You may be seeking more information about what this means for the individual and their future. Or you may simply want to know how you can help.

This free course is designed to introduce what autism is, and provide information on key topics.

 

What will I learn?

Our course covers the journey from diagnosis, through transitions and onto adulthood. You will learn about communication, sensory needs and behaviour, amongst other topics. A full topic list can be seen below.

The aim of the course is to provide useful information about autism and to signpost you to additional support networks that may be relevant to the person you are supporting.

But don’t just take our word for it. 100% of people said they would recommend this training to others.*

 

Is it the right course for me?

This course is an introduction to autism. It is designed for parents, families and carers of individuals with autism. It should take you about 2-4 hours to complete.

If you already have a general understanding of autism why not take a look at our course for professionals which covers the topics in more detail.
