World Autism Awareness Day
In honour of World Autism Awareness Day, we have rounded up some useful links about elearning and Autism:
The Geneva Centre for Autism has developed a series of free courses for educators of those with Austism. The courses were developed by a multidisciplinary team of occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, behavioural therapists and others. It can be found on their website.
Gaido is a learning platform to help people with Autism, as well as their teachers and carers. In this article by the eLearning Industry, the founders describe how their state of the art platform will assist autistic students and their tutors.
Autism Internet Modules is a wealth of information on Autism. There are a variety of modules ranging from subjects such as “The Employee with Autism”, “Autism and Medication” and “Parent Implemented Intervention.” These modules are free, or with a small cost, can be accompanied with a certificate.
Autism outreach Canada has created a list of online courses, specifically for educators of children on the spectrum. They can be found here.
We hope you find some useful information in these links that will help you in teaching or caring for those with Autism.
