It will allow you to develop better practice and use evidence-based strategies to support autistic children and adults.
This course is ideal for university staff who support autistic students and want to know more about autism and supportive approaches. Providing learners have a degree, this course meets the DSA-QAG criteria for university mentors and non-medical helpers.
