This series of e-learning modules was developed in response to the Autism Act (2009) and the subsequent strategy for adults with autism, Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives. The autism strategy aims to increase understanding by improving awareness for all frontline public service staff, in line with their job needs, and developing specialist training for staff in health and social care.

These modules won gold in the 2012 e-learning awards for ‘Excellence in the production of learning content’ and have been delivered to over 16,000 learners so far.

Designed for people who want to learn more about autism or professionals who will be working with adults who have autism, these three interactive courses cater for learners who may have no prior knowledge and those who are looking to build on their existing experience.

The first module, ‘Building awareness of adult autism’, offers an introductory explanation of autism and details on what it is like to have autism, as well as information on how you can support someone with autism. 

It is appropriate for anyone who is seeking to learn more about autism and build an awareness of how to support someone with it.

Module two, ‘Supporting adults with autism’, takes a deeper look at how best to support someone with autism and allows a learner to discover what it is like to have autism and how different people with autism see the world.

The final module, ‘Working with adults with autism’, has been designed to support psychological work with adults with autism. This includes psychological assessment, formulation, and treatment, but also covers areas such as training and consultation.

It is targeted at practitioner psychologists and mental health professionals, who already have some understanding of autism, to build on their knowledge and skills for working with adults with autism who are experiencing psychological and mental health problems.
