Implementing the National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism CRC is thrilled to announce the launch of a short course designed to support clinicians wanting to implement the National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders with clinical practice.

Course enrolment is open to all key clinical professionals supporting individuals and families through autism assessments and diagnosis and is currently available for members and non-members through Speech Pathology Australia.

Watch the video trailer below for an overview of the course.

Australia now has a Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders. The Guideline provides recommendations for consistent, strengths-focused, and evidence-based assessment and diagnosis of autism across Australia.

With funding from the Commonwealth Department of Social Services, Autism CRC has developed eLearning modules to support clinicians to understand and implement the Guidelines within their practice.

The modules deliver a consistent overview of the entire pathway for all key clinical professions, including primary healthcare providers such as GPs, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, paediatricians, psychologists, and psychiatrists.

The innovated layout and design allow for self-directed and flexible learning options. Clinicians can tailor their learning based on individual requirements and interests, reflecting the flexibility of the pathway and the roles of key clinical professions.

The learning framework and module objectives help clinicians align their practice with the Guideline recommendations. Content is linked to examples of the Guideline in Practice and learning checkpoints throughout provide opportunities for self-evaluation and reflection.

If you want to learn more, you can find a link to the course through the Autism CRC website or please enquire directly through your relevant college or society.
