Course Support:12 months access to course

Course Description

The Autism Awareness for Educators programme has been designed and created to provide students with a greater knowledge and understanding of this subject area. Over one in one hundred children now are diagnosed with autism, although this figure is increasing all the time and it is likely that many more children remain undiagnosed. This means that autism is found in most schools. Larger schools will have several children with autism at any given time. As awareness increases and diagnostic criteria change, it is likely that all classrooms will have at least one child with autism in the future.

Children on the autistic spectrum think and experience the world and other people differently, resulting in them misinterpreting and misunderstanding. Educators therefore, need to be aware of how they can best support children on the autistic spectrum to receive an appropriate education, get along with others, and function independently in the world. Wherever possible, children with autism should be educated in a mainstream school, which means that classrooms must be inclusive, balancing the needs of the autistic child with the needs of others, creating an appropriate learning environment for all. Other children with autism may need to be educated in independent schools, residential schools, special needs schools or schools for gifted children.

This is a knowledge based online course, with a short multiple choice exam after you've read all of the learning material. A downloadable certificate will be available upon completion from NCC Resources
