Asperger Syndrome Awareness Diploma Course

The Asperger Syndrome Awareness course is beneficial for practitioners and parents or anyone with an interest in Autism who wishes to improve their knowledge and skill in the area. We give some basic tips and strategies for supporting people with Asperger Syndrome. We discuss the history of Asperger’s as a syndrome; definitions of Asperger syndrome and what makes it different from other autistic spectrum disorders. The myths and fallacies about Asperger syndrome will be explored.

We also include the range of conditions which people with ASD often have alongside their main diagnosis. We examine the current understanding of the biological basis of Asperger syndrome and why it tends to have a high heritability. We will also examine why there are gender differences in the presentation of Asperger’s in men and women. For people working or wishing to work with people who have Asperger syndrome, we have advice on the therapeutic and educational techniques which have been used, developed or adapted to help support people with Asperger syndrome.

By the end of this online training course you will have an overview of the characteristics, diagnosis and the effects of having Asperger syndrome on individuals with the syndrome and how this presents challenges to them, as individuals, in the context of school and work and also the implications for family and loved ones.

Amazing course! Clear training videos and everything you need to know to become a nail tech! I'm so pleased I decided to do this. It's put me on track to work for myself and own my own business

Kelly Goulding

My dream has come true. Eventually I found this online course after searching for years in my area where none of the colleges provided it and it is necessary to get my dream job.

I got an incredible discount and what I like the best I got a lifetime access to the course, so there is no rush and I can revisit any time to revise as well.

Excellent support and immediate response to emails, I am very pleased. The course material is written in an easily understandable way, no hidden fees and mobile friendly so I can learn anywhere.

Zsuzsanna Horak

I love the course very straight forward. Would love to know if there are any more courses available like this for advancement. Everything is clearly explained and if you get in trouble there is a helpline you can call. There should be more courses like this available online to benefit those people that want to go to work in their chosen field but are unable to pay for a program at college or else where. Well done and thank you for allowing me to pursue my interest and hopefully a career at the end of my studying.

Jo Debbage-lodge

Amazing course, very insightful and surprisingly current. I work in the healthcare industry and this course answered a lot of my questions about the pharmaceutical field and the future relationship between the NHS and the Pharmacies.

What an innovative way to learn. Congrats everyone who put this together. I’m now hungry for further studies. The cost is next to nothing and I would definitely recommend the service to anyone. Actually, I plan to inform my colleagues about my success and will forward them here to try this out and see if they’ll be impressed as I am.

This was an absolute joy. Credit to New Skills Academy for offering this.

My son has Aspergers Syndrome, so when this course Autism Awareness Diploma came up with 90% off just after Christmas, I thought I would like to do it. There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace, the course is very informative with lots of hints and tips. The process of going through the Modules and assignments was also very easy to do. The cost of the course was expensive if I hadn't had 90% off. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending New Skills Academy courses to other people for their informative and ease of usage. I really enjoyed it.
