The Autism Spectrum (Web Autism) distance learning programme will be of particular interest to those working with children and adults on the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome. Learning support assistants, support staff and parents will find the programme particularly helpful.
Module 1: Understanding and responding to the autism spectrum
This module explores what it means to be on the autism spectrum. It reflects on how the world may be perceived by the individual with autism. Students are encouraged to examine their own practice and look at ways in which they can meet the specific needs of the person with whom they work. The module identifies and explores specific restrictions in communication, socialisation and rigidity of thought of a person on the spectrum and discusses implications for meeting those needs. It encourages students to reflect on how the person with autism best learns within the framework of using the strengths of the individual to overcome difficulties.
Module 2: Working with individuals with on the autism spectrum
This module introduces students to key approaches in the education of people with autism. It examines the importance of partnership with parents and carers and explores the meaning of multidisciplinary and collaborative practice. Students are encouraged to look at how they can create conditions that enable people with autism to predict their world with a degree of confidence. This includes ways of approaching challenging behaviour.
Module 3: Models for Practice when working with people on the autism spectrum
Students are encouraged to look at the wider world in which people with autism live. The module covers an overview of the lifelong education of people on the autism spectrum. It examines the background to the development of services and includes understanding the context of an inclusive society. The implications of new legislation and inclusion to the design and organisation of service provision in both children and adult services are covered.
