Early Learning Unit Manager Grace O’Callaghan and Deputy Manager Alma Carroll were awarded certificates in Autism Studies at the recent UCC Graduation Ceremonies. The course is designed to introduce participants to the different ways in which people on the autistic spectrum experience the world. There will be an emphasis on the communication and behavioural challenges for the individual with autism and how society responds to these challenges and also how a person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may contribute positively to society. The issue of mental health and ASD is also examined. The importance of early intervention, education and inclusion, and legislation and policies that govern best practice guidelines and models of service are also key elements.
The Shine Centre have been involved in the autism programme in UCC since its inception with Laura Crowley of the Shine Building Blocks Programme lecturing on the course and sitting on the Stakeholders and Quality Review committee.
