Course Description

This course provides a concise insight into the typical factors that contribute to a child’s development of autism, as well as some of the usual behaviours associated with the condition and how to provide appropriate assistance for people who have it. It concludes with overall guidance and information about the complete diagnosis process and the intervention approaches that can be made to boost the day-to-day activities of the individual suffering from autism.

Autism diagnoses have been on the rise in the UK for several years, with a recent analysis finding a substantial increase in autism prevalence rates in UK schools between 2010 and 2019. Autism affects 1–2% of the UK population or 1 in every 100 children and 2 in every 100 adults. According to the number of referrals in the system, there are around 100,000 children and 1,000,000 people with autism in the United Kingdom. Autism Awareness Course can reduce these figures by supporting and assisting individuals with autism, as well as raising awareness about their acceptability in our society.

Autism is a long-term developmental impairment characterised by various developmental problems of the brain causing a number of problems with social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, intellectual impairment and repetitive behaviour. However, people suffering from autism are often gifted with the ability to succeed in a variety of disciplines, including visual abilities, music, maths, and art. Although this course focuses on children with autism, it is equally beneficial for parents or caregivers to understand how to deal effectively and compassionately with autistic individuals’ tantrums and emotional outbursts.

Upon successful completion of this Autism Awareness Course, you will be able to identify the difficulties that autistic children confront and assist them in achieving a higher quality of life by creating awareness about their positive acceptance in society.
