There is a “hidden disability” that is creating a massive problem for early years providers. Understanding Asperger Syndrome and the impact it can have on early years provision is crucial. It is essential that your early years practitioners understand this condition. Our targeted training resource nurtures inclusivity and promotes positive outcomes for all learners within your early years setting.
Asperger’s is generally recognised as being a milder form of autism and it is important that the full autistic spectrum is considered when learning about this condition. This course is designed to help you enhance your relationships with individuals affected by Asperger Syndrome. You will understand the characteristics of the condition, how it is diagnosed, and the challenges it presents to individuals and families in their personal and working lives.
