About

On the Inclusion (Autism Children) programme from University of Birmingham, you will develop the key skills and expertise required to meet the needs of children with autism.

Overview

On this specialist Autism (Children) pathway you will be taught by leading experts in autism and you will draw on your own experience as part of the content and assessment. Through this degree, you will be able to develop knowledge, understanding and critiques of research, educational policy and practice and have the opportunity to investigate historical and cultural aspects of disability.  The course is designed for professionals working with children and young people on the autism spectrum. 

The Inclusion (Autism Children) programme from University of Birmingham is a unique three-year, part-time course which has been designed for those who want to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and adults with diverse needs. It has been designed for teachers and other educational and care professionals working in a range of national and international settings.

Careers

The MA Inclusion (Autism Children) degree will 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, 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, youth workers, behaviour managers and counsellors.
