This Autism Awareness Presentation is designed to give the user an opportunity to learn more about autism and to build a general picture of the condition and how it impacts on a person with autism and their family.
The resources on the site are split into two parts, the first is the presentation on Autism Awareness and the second element is a Resource Centre containing additional short presentations on specific subject and also containing downloadable resources on items directly related to the content of the Autism Awareness presentation.
The Autism Awareness Presentation is split into 8 modules with each module covering a specific element of autism. Each module takes approximately 5 minutes to complete and the user can completed modules 1 to 8 in chronological order (recommended) or select a specific module from the module menu.
For more information on the content for each module, just click on the module title, on the panel opposite.
It’s really easy to get started. Just go to the “Course Start” link on the menu bar at the top of the page and complete the sign up procedure. It is necessary to create your own unique account so that you can track your own progress through the modules. If you don’t complete all of the modules in one sitting you will arrive back at the same point of progress when you sign in on your next visit. You can also revisit the site anytime you wish to look at specific elements of the presentation if you so wish. Once you create an account you will also have access to the extensive Resource Centre.
