Summary

This comprehensive course, written and developed by a leading authority on autism, will teach you everything that you need to know about autism, what it is, how to spot the signs and symptoms, diagnosing autism, the gender differences in autism, treatments, therapies, interventions and strategies, how to make reasonable adjustments, adults and children with autism, and inclusion.

Autism is estimated to affect one in every 100 people in the UK, although in the US their current estimate is one in every 68 people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the autistic brain is organized in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with autism sees, perceives, and processes the world around them. The impact of autism is individual - every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Essential listening for anyone in contact with Autistic children

My son is 12 years old and was diagnosed several years ago. This has been the most helpful resource I have yet to come across. If you are a parent share it with you close friends and family- it will help them, your child and you GREATLY.
