About the course

Communication is a common difficulty associated with autism, which can impact individuals in a number of ways. Research shows that communication can be a key factor in high levels of anxiety and behaviour that challenges.

This session is for professionals who support children and young people with autism. In this session you will learn why communication is important when supporting, the different ways that individuals with autism can be impacted by their communication difficulties, how you can amend your communication in order to help and some useful tools and strategies to aid the individual with communicating their wishes and needs.
