A free course that will assist parents, families and carers who live and work with individuals on the autism spectrum will be launched at Swinburne University of Technology in April 2015.

Running for six weeks, the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) will use a unique scenario-based learning approach, which draws on the stories and experiences of individuals, carers and experts in the field.

Using the scenario-based learning approach, the course will emphasise that there is not one correct way to approach different situations with individuals on the autism spectrum and will instead provide a range of solutions for better social, emotional and educational outcomes.

The online nature of the course would allow people from anywhere in the world to participate.

Commencing Thursday 2nd April, 2015 (World Autism Day)
