ABOUT THIS COURSE

Understand the challenges people with autism face on a daily basis so you can help and better communicate with them


Each year, the reported number of people afflicted with autism increases, and the autism community needs more people who are understanding of the condition and trained to help.  Whether you are looking to make a career out of helping autistic people or just want to prepare yourself better for being accommodating to people suffering from autism, our course is for you.

Our online Autism Awareness course is specially designed to give you the education you need to help the autistic community. Whether you are looking to learn more about autism to help an autistic person you love or you are just looking to make a difference with people in the community, we are ready and waiting to help.
