Visit the official programme website for more information


The Education (Autism) program from Torrens University Australia  prepares you with an in-depth awareness of the strengths and challenges people with autism face in education and how to effectively respond to them. Graduates are better equipped in teaching children with autism and creating inclusive learning environments.

Using a ‘person first’ approach, you will increase understanding of autism, and develop and apply positive support skills to effectively engage learners in a range of educational environments. You will learn how to create supportive learning environments to shift away from traditional views of Autism to contemporary practice and authentic inclusive education. This is not an accredited Australian Initial Teacher Education course and therefore does not qualify the student to teach in Australia.

Career opportunities  

Upon graduation, you will have the opportunity to support people with autism across a range of educational environments. You will find employment in schools, TAFEs and universities, as well as external government and not-for-profit agencies focused on education.
