Raising Awareness of Autistic Spectrum Condition

“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).

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Gain information and increase your knowledge about the autism spectrum
  • Discuss common difficulties that people with autism experience and think about how this may impact on their lives – including stress, anxiety, sensory issues and social/communication problems
  • Think about other difficulties experienced by people on the autism spectrum, such as problems with work and social relationships
  • Discuss some practical strategies for understanding and caring for people with ASC
  • Identify the services that are available locally for people seeking a diagnostic assessment, and identify what support there is for people once they are diagnosed with an ASC.
