Autism Postgraduate Certificate 

 

Gain a critical, theoretical and practical understanding of the diverse learning requirements of pupils and students who identify with the wide spectrum of autism. This course gives you in-depth understanding of autism and Asperger syndrome and some of the associated issues.

This qualification is designed for people with an interest in autism and practitioners in the field of education, who have experience of working with learners with autism across the age range (in keeping with the 0-25 framework the Children and Families Act 2014).

The course content is informed by the experiences and voices of those with autism and our approach is underpinned by the inclusive principle " nothing about us without us".

You'll apply theory to practice - and in so doing you'll have the opportunity to reflect on inclusive practices and their efficacy in assisting diverse learners with autism to be successful in education.

This course will develop your ability to analyse critically and build upon you own attitudes, professional experience and practice including the promotion of social justice, inclusion, and equity as a policy and a practice.
