In care proceedings it can sometimes be difficult to differentiate between presentations related to autism and those as a result of compromised attachment. How do we tell and what approaches can professionals employ to lessen anxiety in children (and adults) identified as autistic and support them to understand and cope with being in care?
This course will introduce you to the wide ranging presentations of autism and explore the implications for your practice focusing on the following key areas:
- An introduction to the characteristics of autism
- Presentation in females
- ASC or Compromised Attachment?
- Effective communication, interview and assessment approaches

I was intrigued by this course as it looked at autism from a different angle and more in line with my work in child protection. Was not disappointed. Really learnt a lot and especially got me thinking about attachment and autism and how to tease it all out. Feel more informed about autism in females too. Have sat through dull online presentations over the lockdown but really enjoyed the different ways information was provided and the interactive lessons made you think. Have already recommended it to others.
