Module Description

This introductory module explores how to recognise communication differences for people on the spectrum and what factors impact upon successful communication. This will allow learners to respond to communication differences to effectively support people on the autism spectrum.

By the end of this module you should be able to:

  • describe and discuss language and communication use and reflect on your own communication style
  • understand variations in use of language and communication in autism
  • identify factors that can impact on (successful) communication
  • recognise and respond to the natural communication preferences of people on the autism spectrum.

“It gives a good over view of the fact that not all folk with autism are the same and that there is a variety of communication methods that are used and preferred”.
