General Description

Over the past 40 years, there appears to have been a steady increase in the number of children/young people diagnosed with autism. This may be due to improved diagnostic tests, widening of the diagnostic criteria, less stigmatisation of the condition and an increased awareness from health professionals and families alike (Baron-Cohen et al, 2009).

Individual students who have autism have his/her own unique strengths, abilities and needs. Therefore it is essential that teachers adapt lessons and activities within the curriculum to capitalise on and meet these diverse strengths and needs. Differentiating lessons for students with Autism is vital so that students with this unique condition can reach their full potential.

This course will show you how you can tweak your lessons to cater to students with Autism (and other learning needs) and create a success based learning environment.
