Autism is defined by the National Autistic Society as ‘a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them’. Around 700,000 people in the UK may be autistic, or more than 1% of the population, so it’ s quite likely that some of the clients who present to your practice are on the autistic spectrum. You may not necessarily be working with them for issues directly connected to their autism, but the condition is inevitably part of their personality and how they respond to the world. By understanding it – and them – more fully, you can make the experience of therapy as positive and easy as possible. This course is written by a mother and daughter team. Debbie Waller is an experienced therapist, writer and trainer. Rachel Waller, also an experienced author, is on the Autistic spectrum herself. They have put together this course for therapists and others who provide services to those with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) to help you understand the challenges they face and to provide them with the support they need.
