This course is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings. The aim is to help teachers and other professionals respond effectively to the needs of pupils with autism spectrum conditions (ASC).
The two modules you will study cover theories of inclusion, how to make inclusion work for pupils with ASC, current research into causes of ASC, how children and young people with ASC experience the world, and the impact of this on education.
You will also explore a range of strategies to support learning and consider best practice.
Throughout the course, you will be helped to develop a critical understanding of theory alongside the practical knowledge you will gain.
You will be encouraged to make links between theory and your own practice, and become a reflective practitioner who is able to think proactively and strategically about provision for pupils with special and additional learning needs.
