Understanding The Autistic Spectrum

Aim: Designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of the autism spectrum, current research, and best practice approaches, this comprehensive programme equips teachers, parents and other practitioners with evidence-based strategies to meet the needs of children and young people with autism, from preschool to further education.

Participant Profile: This course is primarily designed to give teachers, parents and other allied professionals the confidence and skills to support children and young people with autism, including those with Asperger syndrome.

Learners will cover the following:

  • From the search for an explanation, to diagnosis, assessment, proven interventions and teaching approaches, this course provides a clear route to unravelling the complexity of ASD.
  • Drawing on the most up-to-date neuroscience and research and including the diagnostic implications of the DSM V, it will guide you through constructive, evidence-based and contextually relevant ways to help children and young people with ASD realise their full potential.
  • You will become familiar with current theories and perspectives on ASD and the implications for practice.
  • Early identification, assessment and diagnostic procedures, individual educational planning and early intervention approaches, such as EarlyBird and LEAP, are examined. Models of intervention, such as TEACCH, Pivotal Response Training and FloorTime, are detailed and explained.
