In line with the needs identified in the Northern Ireland Executive’s Autism Strategy (2013-2020) and associated Action Plan, the MSc Autism Spectrum Disorders has been updated and revised and attuned specifically to raising awareness, addressing issues specifically related to children and adults on the autism spectrum, and increasing knowledge of evidence-based behavioural/developmental interventions.
The programme provides a range of specialised practical skills for teaching and supporting children and adults with autism in a variety of settings; the teamwork skills needed to support and advise colleagues; and, the knowledge and understanding of the special needs of individuals with autism.
“We are very fortunate to have such high calibre and expert MSc ASD students available to us, who can contribute enormously to improving the play, learning and social experience of our ASD children.” Joan Henderson, Sólás Educational Charity.
