Supporting children with Autism

Supporting children with Autism


More than 1 in 100 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum so it's likely that you will be supporting children with Autism in early years settings, schools, colleges, and care provisions. Learn common signs of Autism, how the condition affects children across a range of developmental areas and ages, and interventions and approaches that can help. 

This course has specific advice and guidance for early years practitioners, teachers, and health and social care practitioners who work with children.
