Course Description

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and
relates to other people around them. According to the National Autistic Society, autism affects about
700,000 people in the United Kingdom, which equates to 1 in 100 of the population and the number
of children being diagnosed with the condition is continuing to increase.

This course will provide you with an understanding of what autism is and how it affects a child’s daily
life. It will touch on what factors contribute towards a child developing autism as well as some of the
typical behaviours associated with it and how you can provide effective support for those with the
condition. It also discusses what happens during the diagnosis process, some of the intervention
methods that can help manage the condition and suggests some simple adaptations you can make
to improve a child with autism’s day to day life.
