“Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways.” (National Autism Society)
Autism itself is not a mental health condition. However, people with autism can experience mental health difficulties because of the stress of every-day life. This course aims to raise awareness of some of the difficulties that people with autism face and how to live well with autism by thinking about practical strategies and support available.
A large part of the training is facilitated by people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC).
