Overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder for Paraprofessionals

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has effects on social relationships and communication that range from mild to profound. It is all over the news these days as ever-increasing numbers of children and adults are diagnosed with ASD. At the same time, new research is being conducted to search for the causes of ASD and find out how people with ASD can be helped with the challenges they may face. The goal of this course is to provide an overview of autism spectrum disorder for paraprofessionals. Working with children or adolescents with a diagnosis of ASD can be fun and satisfying and it can also be very challenging and sometimes frustrating. It’s important to focus on building a relationship with the individual rather than trying to force immediate changes. Change and learning are possible if you pay attention to what the individual is experiencing and explore creative paths. In this course, you will be introduced to some of the key characteristics of ASD and meet several different children and teens with this diagnosis. You will explore scenarios where you can experiment with different strategies that might work well (or not so well) with a person who has a diagnosis of ASD.
