This is an online self-paced interactive learning module.
This course aims to raise awareness of the prevalence of autism in adulthood, as well as help clinicians to think differently about their approach to adult mental health so that they are more likely to consider autism when working with adults. During this course you will learn to:
- Identify how our understanding of autism has changed from the 20th century to the 21st century
- Understand importance of considering a diagnosis of autism in adults with a co-occurring mental illness
- Identify potential features of autism in adults that would benefit from further assessment
- Identify the potential differences and similarities between the presentation of autism and mental health conditions in adults
- Identify adaptations to may be used to modify mental health practice to better meet the needs of autistic clients.
While learning this, we aim to update your view of what it is to be autistic, and to encourage you to consider the possibility of autism when you have a patient/consumer sitting in front of you. Throughout this course, you will be hearing from autistic people directly.
