Autistic Spectrum Conditions:  A different way of seeing the world

Triad of impairment 150x150 ASDThis one day course has been revised to take account diagnostic changes  to autistic spectrum conditions (ASCs) in the new DSM-5.  It is an introductory programme for caregivers working with children and young people with ASCs in residential and foster care and provides a conceptual framework for understanding autistic spectrum conditions .  Children with an ASC in these settings often present with multiple and enduring needs which compound their difficulties.  The programme provides opportunity to think about, understand and develop practice to meet these complex needs as well as following the National Autistic Society training code of practice, which states that the context and sequence of acquiring knowledge and understanding of autism is very important, particularly for staff working ‘hands on’ with people with autism, and that it is important for them to know what to do but also why they are doing it.  In short, learners need to understand a conceptual framework before more advanced instruction is delivered. It is essential that good induction and baseline knowledge are in place before training in other more sophisticated approaches takes place
