Autism Awareness


This course is designed for those with no prior knowledge of autism, and is therefore suitable for anyone with an interest in the subject, although it is especially recommended for all those looking to work in the health sector. Autism covers a wide range of social, speech and communication disabilities, and you will learn how to manage any variation whilst remaining understanding of the behavioural difficulties which it can cause. The training fulfils recommendations underlined by the CQC to help improve the quality of care provided to those with autism.
