Course Details

Continue your professional development with this comprehensive, interesting, and very relevant CPD course for primary teachers, secondary teachers, teaching assistants, childcare professionals, and anyone in the field of education. Autism (or Autism Spectrum Disorder) is a complex and varied developmental disorder; it’s important to be aware of it and be equipped to help neurodiverse learners.

Children and young people with autism can experience a wide range of challenges, resulting in a variety of different support needs. This training will equip educators with the knowledge they require to meet those needs more effectively, creating a more inclusive learning environment and making learning more accessible to all.

The CPD course begins with helpful information about autism: the different types and ways in which they can present, the common characteristics of autism in children and young people, and how it can affect learning and behaviour. It covers the assessment methods and criteria used for diagnosing autism to give educators a better awareness and understanding of the condition.

In addition to teaching how to recognise autism, the course provides tools for behaviour management, supporting learning, and inclusion. Participants will discuss helpful strategies and best practice for teaching students with autism, focusing on how to communicate effectively and meet sensory needs.

Gain the knowledge and strategies you need to recognise and understand autism and support learners affected by it.
