About this course
This programme offers a qualification that delivers the knowledge and skills required to support people with autism in a range of different situations.
It is designed specifically for students who provide home, community and school-based services, and is therefore flexible, combining intensive workshop teaching, web-based study and work-based learning.
You take five modules: one, Academic Development, is taught at our Canterbury campus. The other four modules are completed by blended learning and include introductions to the autism spectrum and supporting people on the autism spectrum, a case study assessment and a module focusing on intervention.
Note: Intake for this course is in October 2016.
