Autism is a neurological condition that can impact a person from childhood, although early detection and intervention can greatly improve quality of life.

On completion of this education activity participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children and understand behaviours they may engage in.
  • Apply screening tools to children with a likelihood of ASD.
  • Understand and address parental concerns regarding a child diagnosed with ASD.
  • Implement a multidisciplinary care plan and understand the ways that allied health professionals can assist a child with ASD.
