Updated Understanding Autism E-Learning

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Kwango is pleased to announce the launch of its updated Understanding Autism E-Learning course, which is the latest addition to its other popular Adult Services, Children’s Services and Health Care E-Learning Courses.

The National Autistic Society estimates that around 1 in every 100 people in the UK may have an Autistic Spectrum Condition.

As highlighted in the new Government Guidelines, ‘Think Autism: Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives…April 2014’, it is essential that Care and Support Services work together to give careful consideration to each person’s particular needs, strengths, talents and wishes.  Support should be person centred and timely to enable them to live fulfilling and rewarding lives within a society that accepts and understands them.

Our Understanding Autism E-learning course is designed for anyone whose job may bring them into day to day contact with Adult and Children with Autism including practitioners within LA, Health, Police and Education Services.

One of our many references includes Gloucestershire/ Gloucestershire NHS:

“Our ASD partnership Board members gave very positive feedback on Kwango Autism programme. Carers, People with ASD, Health & Social Care Practitioners, Service Managers, Commissioners and the National Autistic Society were in attendance so a good cross section of feedback. “

The course aims to help in a number of ways.  These include providing a ‘basic awareness’ level of skills and knowledge as described in the Autism Skills and Knowledge list produced by Skills for Health, Skills for Care and the National Autistic Society.  It offers the very latest 2014 government policy initiative and good practice in supporting Children and Adults with Autistic Spectrum Conditions including the transition between the two and also provides practical approaches, tools and technologies that promote a person centred approach to meeting needs.

Through our use of clear content, careful animation, case studies, interviews, quizzes, action plans, further information and guided learning; staff will gain a great deal of knowledge and ideas for best practice in order to make a positive difference to people’s lives.
