    Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people around them. According to the National Autistic Society, autism affects about 700,000 people in the United Kingdom, which equates to 1 in 100 of the population, and the number of children being diagnosed with the condition is continuing to increase. This Autism CPD Course will provide you with an understanding of what autism is and how it affects a child’s daily life. It will touch on what factors contribute towards a child developing autism as well as some of the typical behaviours associated with it and how you can provide effective support for those with the condition. It also discusses what happens during the diagnosis process, some intervention methods that can help manage the condition, and some simple adaptations you can make to improve a child with autism’s day-to-day life.

    Autism CPD Course Content

    Target Audience

    People working in adult and child care environments. Those working in all areas of care may come into contact with people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Although the course focuses on children with autism, being aware of the condition and how best to provide support to someone with ASD will be useful to anyone who interacts with and cares for children and adults as part of their work.


    Knowing the typical behaviours and challenges associated with ASD can equip you to identify these and act in a supportive way. CPD approval means that this course can be used by those who need to prove they are continually developing themselves. Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time so that they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.

    Further Progression

    There are many courses in our health and social care suite that would make great follow-ups to this course. If you are responsible for the care of adults or children, then a wide range of them would provide valuable additions to your knowledge. Specific topics that complement this directly are Introduction to Early Years Foundation Stage, Equality and Diversity, and Mental Health Awareness.
