Master of Autism*

Course summary

The Master of Autism is an online course designed to enable professionals and parents to lead the development and implementation of strategies that support individuals on the autism spectrum.

This degree takes a social justice perspective to supporting children and adults on the autism spectrum by focussing on creating successful learning, education and employment programs in early childhood and school settings, and employment environments.

What You Study

Students will develop the knowledge and expertise necessary to analyse and translate current autism research in areas such as the use of technology, communities of practice, leadership, transitions, and aetiology and biology of autism spectrum disorder. Students will use these skills to evaluate current practises, establish socially inclusive policies and structures, and implement evidence-based learning and employment programs that enable and support the strengths of individuals on the autism spectrum.
