About the Course

This qualification aims to develop your understanding of autism and the principles of supporting individuals with autism - covering the person-centred approach and influence of positive communication methods, how to support positive behaviour, and how individuals with autism can be supported to live healthy and fulfilled lives.

This qualification is designed for individuals who wish to develop an understanding of autism and how to support individuals with autism. Autism is a spectrum condition that affects how a person communicates with others and how they interpret the world around them.
