This unit is designed to give participants the competencies required to design learning environments to support positive behaviour in children, adolescents and adults with autism. The aim of the unit of study is to enable participants to support behaviour through positive, proactive approaches.

Participants will focus on the development of skills needed to work with families, carers, and individuals as part of a multidisciplinary team in supporting positive behaviour
