UNDERSTANDING AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

ASD is a widely known condition but one that is not always recognised or understood. It is a social communication disorder which impacts interactions internally within organisation or externally between organisations and service users. This can lead to communication breakdown and discriminatory decision making. 

This module provides the learner with information about autistic traits, the experience of autistic people in a neurotypical world, and various organisational approaches to improve inclusion and accessibility. 

RECOGNISING AND REFRAMING NEURODIVERSITY

The term 'neurodiversity' refers to those with marked differences (compared to most people) in their information and sensory processing. The term 'neurodivergent' includes someone who has autism, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, or other neurological differences. 

This module helps the learner to recognise the prevalence of neurodiversity and how it may impact service user and worker engagement. The module also helps learners to understand and utilise the strengths of neurodivergent people. 

Understanding ASD
Recognising Neuro
Equality Act

OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE EQUALITY ACT 2010

While the Equality Act 2010 requires service providers and employers to ensure that their practices are not discriminatory towards disabled people, hundreds of legal claims are launched yearly on the basis of disability discrimination. 

This module provides the learner with a comprehensive overview of an organisation's obligations to disabled service users and workers. The module also outlines ways to embed equality practice so as to prevent discrimination and legal claims. 

Dispute

DISABILITY RELATED DISPUTE MANAGEMENT 

Disability related disputes frequently arise where there are misunderstandings, misperceptions, and mistreatment. In such instances, organisations can experience disruptions in teamwork and productivity, and can open themselves up to legal claims as mentioned above. 

 

This module provides learners with tools and resources to help organisations prevent disputes and to manage them effectively when they arise. 

CHALLENGING DISABILITY PREJUDICE & 'OTHERNESS'

Attitudes towards disability and difference play a significant role in exclusion, discrimination, and inaccessibility. Prejudicial views therefore undermine any attempts to improve organisational disability equality practice. 

This module engages with the learner's beliefs about disability, and provides useful information designed to promote respect and empathy towards disabled people.
