Course description

Autism is a disorder that affects an average of 1 in 60 children worldwide. A child with autism finds it difficult to communicate, socialiase or behave like normal kids their age, which is why awareness of this condition is important to deal with them accordingly. Whether you are a parent to such a kid, work in a school, work with autism kids or work in healthcare, this program is all you need to build a positive relationship with them. This extensive course will cover the various challenges faced by autism kids and will guide you on how to provide appropriate support and assistance.

Once you get an insight into the disorder, this course will walk you through how to handle children/adults with autism to make them comfortable around you. This course will educate you on the different symptoms of autism and the challenges faced by these individuals when it comes to education, communication, socializing and building relationships. To add to that, this course will also enlighten you on how to help the individuals around these challenges to improve their lives.

Autism is mostly detected in childhood. Usually the behaviours of children are observed keenly to detect autism, however, the other ways to detect autism will also be discussed in this course, after which the course curriculum will help you build positive relationships with the individuals facing autism to give them a sense of acceptance.
