About

The Autism (Children) programme from University of Birmingham, approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS), is designed for professionals working with children and young people on the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome.

Overview

The Autism (Children) programme taught at the University of Birmingham is appropriate for those working in early years provision, schools, residential care, advisory, support or therapeutic services. 

  • On the Autism (Children) course, you will draw on your own experience as part of the content and assessment.
  • You will benefit from association with leading experts in autism who are members of the Autism Centre for Education and Research (ACER). 
  • The Autism (Children) course has been approved by the British Psychological Society for the purpose of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Careers

The aims of the Autism (Children) programme are to give you knowledge of the autism spectrum, based on theory, research and practice. It aims to develop skills in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people and to improve your awareness of different approaches and models of service delivery (particularly in the area of education). 

Taking the perspective of the individual child or young person on the autism spectrum is paramount, and listening to parents, carers and families on what they need and value is also stressed.

There is the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings, including progression to a PhD. The excellent careers advice provided by personal tutors has encouraged many of our graduates to successfully apply for leadership roles working with children with autism. These include: specialist teachers, education advisors, special educational needs coordinators, teaching assistants and youth workers.
