Developing a Graduate Certificate in Autism Diagnosis

This project aimed to develop the Graduate Certificate in Autism Diagnosis (GCAD) This development includes:

  • a teaching module to cover diagnosis of toddlers,
  • a module to cover diagnosis of adults,
  • producing videos of multidisciplinary assessments to supplement the observational component of the placement unit.

The Graduate Certificate in Autism Diagnosis (GCAD) was developed at the University of Western Australia (UWA). In 2019 the eligibility criteria were expanded as a result of interest from various medical and allied health professionals.  Since 2015, 32 students have completed the course and a further 15 students were enrolled in the 2019 offering.
