This book provides an introduction to supporting a person with autism. It explains how to work in a person centred way that takes into account the person’s experience of the autistic spectrum. The book explains the difficulties that people with autism might experience with communication, social interaction and imagination as well as their possible sensory needs.
This book puts the person with a learning disability at the centre of the support you give. It uses real life stories, activities and thinking points to cover all of the learning outcomes and is full of practical examples of how to apply the ideas to the support that you provide.
The book is designed to support the Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Health and Social Care (learning disability pathway) and the Common Induction Standards and in particular:
