World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. According to the World Autism Awareness Day website;

“Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.”

Sprott Shaw College’s Community Support Worker – Social Services program includes an Applied Behavioural Analysis course that discusses Autism and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ABC Model). The program also has courses in Child and Adolescent Growth and Development, Counseling Techniques for Children and Youth as well as two 4-week practicums.
