Written and developed by the well-respected authority on autism who authored our Autism Awareness Course, this course has been crafted to give guidance on effective therapeutic approaches that can make significant and positive differences to the quality of life of people with autism.
You will learn about 24 different therapies and interventions that parents can use, with Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and ABA covered extensively, along with strategies that can be put in place to help with behavioural issues. You will also learn why children with autism behave as they do, in the hope that it will help you to see things from their perspective and experience an almost first-person viewpoint of how it is to live with autism.
An introduction to autism itself is provided to those taking the Advanced Autism Awareness Diploma as a standalone course. The course also discusses the ideas behind interventions and how to go about choosing the type of therapy that will work best for your child, before explaining several lesser-used (alternative) interventions that you may have not previously considered or may not have been aware.
As previously mentioned, the course offers a comprehensive understanding of 3 particularly effective, and popular, therapies, with a module provided on each. These are:
- Occupational Therapy Helps develop a persons ability to function effectively in their environment.
- Speech and Language Therapy Aides those who have difficulties with speech, communication, eating, swallowing or drinking.
- Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) – A specific form of intervention based on Behavioural Psychology that is used with children who have autism, to help them learn new skills and to interact more effectively with the world around them.
In addition to these 3 intervention types, the course also discusses Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and the use of Discrete Trial Training (DTT).
The Advanced Autism Diploma Course looks at the emotional wellbeing of children with autism and some of the holistic psychological interventions that can make a significant difference to your childs wellbeing. These interventions include CBT, Music Therapy, Drama Therapy, Portage, Community Dentistry, and Educational Psychology.
The course also explains challenging behaviour in children with autism, including how this comes about, its effects on the child and their family, why it happens, and holistic ways in which you can help a child through the issues that lead to these behaviours. The course explains some basic behaviour strategies before covering 3 approaches TEACCH, SPELL, and SCERTS, with the aim of improving the lives of both the child and their family.
