Working with Individuals on the Autism Spectrum PgC

Course Description

By developing a greater understanding of the autistic spectrum, we as a society can learn how to work more effectively with autistic individuals. Taking this course will improve your knowledge base and skills in working alongside autistic people, following a learning pathway that is appropriate to your personal and professional development.

Our programme is suitable for anyone (including those on the autism spectrum) interested in learning more about autism and how we can better combat the myths surrounding those on the spectrum. We offer a flexible delivery of study that lets you learn at your own pace, utilising taught sessions and assessment of three assignments. Improve your professional development by gaining the skills for effectively working alongside those on the autistic spectrum.

Course outline

The course consists of three modules taught each term. The first will focus on developing understanding of the key issues in the lives of people on the autism spectrum. Term two will focus on strategies and interventions used to support autistic individuals. Finally you will explore an issue of importance to you, extending knowledge and understanding of a specific issue through undertaking a project.

Graduate destinations

You'll have opportunities to critically evaluate the broad theoretical and conceptual base underpinning current understanding of the autism spectrum, reviewing that knowledge within relevant national standards and multi-professional frameworks. By reflecting on the voice of people on the autism spectrum, you will play a vital role in challenging discrimination and researching appropriate patterns of support for individuals.
