This module, which focuses on understanding and supporting autistic people, has been a collaborative development between the University of Cumbria and the National Autistic Society.

The team involved in course delivery is drawn from both organisations, to ensure that contemporary specialist knowledge and research evidence are an integral part of the course.

We deliver a comprehensive package of knowledge and skills which will increase understanding of the disorders, and facilitate effective working patterns between professionals, carers, individuals and families.

The course will be of relevance to anyone working directly or indirectly with people on the Autism Spectrum; including parents, health professionals, support staff, those working in education and social services.

The module is available at four different levels of study to increase access to this Higher Education short course.
