Working with the autism spectrum: theory into practice

This undergraduate course is a successful collaboration between Edinburgh Napier University and the National Autistic Society.

About the course

This is an evidence-based course which explores ways of supporting autistic people in a range of settings. The assessment (a case study essay) will allow you to reflect upon your own practice, and use the knowledge you gain to further improve the support you offer to autistic people.  

A blended learning approach is utilised for this module, which includes 6 mornings of live online teaching with National Autistic Society Lecturers and further learning online. The course will run over 3 weeks, with live online teaching each Monday and Tuesday morning (9.00 to 12.30). 

Course dates are 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 & 21 June 2022.
