This Autism Spectrum Conditions and Learning programme from University of East London is a new and innovative postgraduate course that will enable you to study and research current, relevant issues concerning autism spectrum conditions and to develop knowledge of inclusive pedagogy and practice.


It is suitable for teachers and allied professionals working within educational settings who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge of autism and inclusion.

This Autism Spectrum Conditions and Learning course from University of East London will help you to develop the skills to reflect critically on your own practice and current research. It will enable you to contribute to school development and strategic vision concerning autism.

What you'll learn

This course is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings. The aim is to help teachers and other professionals respond effectively to the needs of pupils with autism.

The two modules you will study cover theories of inclusion, how to make inclusion work for pupils with autism, current research into causes of autism, how children and young people with autism experience the world, and the impact of this on education.

You will also explore a range of strategies to support learning and consider best practice.

Throughout the course, you will be helped to develop a critical understanding of theory alongside the practical knowledge you will gain.

You will be encouraged to make links between theory and your own practice, and become a reflective practitioner who is able to think proactively and strategically about provision for pupils with special and additional learning needs.

Your future career

This course will help you develop a range of transferable skills that are desirable in a wide range of careers.

These skills include knowledge of theories, legislation, policy and practice, computer literacy, planning and time management and written communication.

It will also demonstrate your ability to design and carry out small-scale research and to engage in critical thinking.

The skills and knowledge developed on this course will allow those working in teaching to gain expertise in the increasingly sought after area of special needs. 

However, this course could also support your career in areas such as therapy, support work, social work, educational psychology and work with adults with additional needs.
