Autism Awareness e-learning programme

Health Education England e-learning for healthcare has worked with a wide range of experts to develop a new Autism Awareness e-learning programme.

The programme aims to train people about autism and provide information about the challenges that autistic people can experience. It has been authored by autistic people and includes real life video diaries. The programme aims to provide insight and guidance on what health and care workers can do to make their services more accessible to autistic people by describing how straightforward reasonable adjustments can be made to services and ways of working.

Modules within the e-learning explore what it is like to experience autism, how to make services accessible for autistic people and how to adapt behaviour to communicate effectively and respectfully to improve the experience of people who access your services.

Programme partners, experts and contributors included Opening Minds Training & Consultancy, National Autistic Taskforce, DOQEX, Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust. More information, including access details, are available on the Autism Awareness programme page on the e-learning for healthcare website.
