Understanding Autism Training
In 2017 360 acquired a contract via Lancashire County Council for all Learning Disabilities and Autism packages within the Pendle area. According to the National Autistic Society 'Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them'. Our carers need to be able to learn and adapt to those who are diagnosed with having Autism. This training allows an insight into those with autism and how to deal with any situations which can arise.
The learning outcomes of this course will be:

- Discuss the “Tri-ad” of impairment and how this may be used to assess someone with Autism
