First identified over 70 years ago, autism is a lifelong developmental disability affecting how a person communicates with and relates to others, and how they make sense of the world. It is a spectrum condition; all people on the spectrum share certain difficulties, but their condition will affect them in different ways. Around 700,000 people in the UK are on the spectrum, 1 in every 100 people. There are no blood tests or brain scans that will detect autism - so what exactly are we talking about? Does autism actually exist? This course provides perspectives from people on the autism spectrum about how autism is defined and experienced. The course will enable learners to recognise the strengths and challenges experienced by many autistic people and how to respond to create enabling environments.
