Microcredentials now available

18 May 2023

We’re excited to announce a new professional learning opportunity for you to upskill or enhance your knowledge of best practice implementation of the National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism. Credit-bearing microcredentials are professional short courses that demonstrate your skills, knowledge and experience in a given subject area. 

This suite of microcredentials will be of interest and value to a range of professionals and other stakeholders, such as allied health professionals (e.g., practicing psychologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and social workers), as well as medical professionals (e.g., GPs, paediatricians and psychiatrists), who may work with people who may be autistic and/ or who contribute to autism diagnostic assessments in the course of their practice.

Professionals who work with and support children, adolescents and adults across settings (e.g., child health nurses, school counsellors, mental health practitioners, youth workers) may also be interested in this suite.

The following microcredentials are currently available for enrolment through the University of Western Australia.

This suite of microcredentials was developed by Autism CRC, with content provided by contributors from the School of Psychological Science at The University of Western Australia. The resources were funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

See the Autism CRC eLearning page to find out more about available short course and study options to improve your understanding and implementation of the Guideline.
