Autism is a condition which affects almost everyone in some way, whether you have a family member, a child, a friend, a colleague, a student or are have autism yourself. Autism is a hidden condition and therefore it requires some understanding and in this free course you will learn all you need to understand autism.
This course will teach you what autism is and how to recognises its major characteristics, it will teach you why autism is a spectrum disorder (or condition) and it will teach you about the major challenges which autistic people might face.
I hope by the end of this course you will have a new awareness of autism and you will be able to approach autism with understanding.
