Course content

On this course, you’ll critically explore psychological and sociological perspectives on the nature of autism. You’ll make connections between these theories and your practice and experience. You’ll work with your student group to discuss approaches to diagnosis, support and intervention in educational settings and beyond.

This course is designed for people with either a personal or a professional link to autism – you might be a teacher, social worker or a psychologist, you may be autistic yourself, or you may have an autistic family member.

You’ll be asked to share your experiences, question your assumptions and critique the approaches to autism diagnosis and intervention you have observed or undertaken.

This is not a training course to learn how to diagnose autism, and nor will you be trained in intervention techniques.

Instead, you’ll build on your existing knowledge, understanding and experience of working with young people and adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). You’ll explore philosophies related to education and autism, critique concepts, and discuss approaches that you can use in your career.

Your final assessment for this course is typically a dissertation. Past dissertations have included an investigation of mainstream teachers’ understanding of equality law in the classroom, and an exploration of the feelings and experiences of fathers with autistic children.
