- the four key areas of difference when working with young people on the autism spectrum.
- know the importance of understanding the young person on the autism spectrum and their profile of strengths and areas for development.
- identify the key areas to help young people build positive relationships with staff, peers and people in their community.
- develop an awareness of sensory and communication differences.
