What’s it all about?

This course is suitable for anyone who would like to develop an understanding of autism and how to support individuals with autism.

Learners wishing to undertake the certificate should be aged 19 or over. You will need to have at least a Level 1 qualification in literacy as you will be expected to write answers for assessment purposes.

The course is split into 6 manageable units:

Introduction to autism
Using a person-centred approach to support individuals with autism
Communication and social interaction in individuals with autism
Sensory processing, perception and cognition
Supporting positive behaviour
Supporting individuals with autism to live healthy and fulfilled lives

Distance learning means you can choose when and where you study. You will be allocated your own study pack and have a personal tutor who you can contact throughout your studies. You will be required to work through a series of tasks and activities designed to reinforce the learning process and demonstrate your knowledge. (This qualification is available with either paper-based or online assessments).
