Autism was first identified over seven decades ago, and the condition has since been a learning curve for people. It is a developmental disability that impacts how an individual relates and communicates with others, and what the world feels like to them. The Diploma in Autism Care – Level 3 is designed to give you a sound understanding of the condition of individuals on the autism spectrum.
If you are a caregiver, teacher or work in the health sector, or maybe the educational sector, you will find the Autism Care Diploma will come in useful to raising more awareness of the condition, and helpful in the next step of your career. You will learn how to conduct assessments in children with autism and implement key strategies to support their education.
The course will guide you on the current developments of people with autism, and their families. You will gain an overall understanding of autism, autism in education, learning about challenging behaviour of people with this condition, identifying communication skills and supporting communication, helping individuals with autism build positive relationships and explore the strengths and difficulties of people with autism. The Diploma in Autism Care – Level 3 creates a successful learning experience and equips you with the skills and knowledge of tackling children with autism, and helping them achieve their fullest potential.
