Autism Spectrum Disorder Awareness
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a life-long condition which cannot be cured but it is not a mental illness.
ASD is categorised by difficulties with:
- Social interaction
- Social communication
- Social imagination and understanding
The Autism Resource Centre (ARC) which is run by Glasgow City Council provides Autism awareness training opportunities for Glasgow City Council staff, other agencies, parents, carers and stakeholders.
The ARC has developed and produced an innovative learning experience which provides Autism awareness as seen through the eyes of a young person with Aspergers Syndrome called Aspen.
Aspergers is a condition linked to ASD. The Team at the ARC want to encourage learners to make their acquaintance with Aspen. This course gives the information and knowledge to help you understand the strengths, differences and difficulties of those on the Autism Spectrum. This is an excellent and fun learning opportunity.
