Autism (AUTISMmas)

[This course will take you about 1 hour to complete.]

This course is designed to introduce you to autism, as well as, how it can affect a child and you as a foster carer. Autistic children can find social situations very difficult and, thus, find it difficult to make friends. This course will help you understand how you can help an autistic child in your care.

In this course you will learn:
- What autism is and different types you may come across.
- What the signs are and how you might spot them.
- What are the behaviours and difficulties a child will have as a result.
- What you can do to manage the condition and help the child.
- What support is available for both the child and yourself.
