Autism Spectrum: Directions for Parents and Carers video transcript

Hello, I’m Dr Simon Bignell. I’m a senior lecturer in Psychology at the University of Derby. This course, Autism Spectrum: Directions for Parents and Carers, is an online course and it’s aimed at individuals with a close relationship to those who encounter different manifestations of autism and it’s a practical guide to recognising, identifying and responding to the spectrum of behaviours. We use real life case studies, filmed and written, to allow course participants to observe and learn to interpret behaviour as well as formulate suggestions for interventions.
