About Autism (Children) at University of Birmingham

These Autism (Children) programmes, approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Continuing Professional Development scheme, are designed for professionals working with children and young people on the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome. They are appropriate for those working in early years provision, schools, residential care, advisory, support or therapeutic services. They draw on the student's own experience as part of the content and assessment. The aims of the Autism (Children) programme are to give students knowledge of the autism spectrum, based on theory, research and practice. It aims to develop skills in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people and to improve the student's awareness of different approaches and models of service delivery (particularly in the area of education). Taking the perspective of the individual child or young person on the autism spectrum is paramount, and listening to parents, carers and families on what they need and value is also stressed.
