General Information

This qualification aims to develop an understanding of autism and the principles of supporting individuals with autism – covering the person-centred approach and influence of positive communication methods, as well as how to support positive behaviour and how individuals with autism can be supported to live healthy and fulfilled lives.

Distance learning is a great way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher or an assessor. Students have the flexibility to study at home or at work, fitting in their course around other life and work commitments.

The course is for learners working in, or intending to work in a variety of sectors and job roles where an understanding of autism and knowledge of how to support people with autism is required.
It is useful for those who provide direct support and those working in sectors such as:
• Health Care
• Social Care
• Leisure
• Education and Training
• Nursing
