Microcredential courses in autism assessment and diagnosis
Recognising that professionals need flexible learning options Autism CRC, with The University of Western Australia, has developed a suite of credit-bearing microcredentials in autism assessment and diagnosis as part of our commitment to widespread implementation of the National Guideline for Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism in Australia.
Microcredentials are short study programs focusing on targeted skills in a chosen area. The courses are available to key clinical professions to increase awareness of, and alignment with, the National Guideline.
Microcredentials cover the following topics:
- Autism: Contemporary diagnostic frameworks
- Principles of Best Practice in Autism Assessment and Diagnosis
- Autism: diagnostic features and assessment approaches in early childhood (0-5 years)
- Autism: diagnostic features and assessment approaches in children (6-16 years)
- Autism: diagnostic features and assessment approaches in older adolescents and adults (17+ years)
- Initiating a Referral for autism diagnostic assessment
- Differential diagnosis: distinguishing autism from other neurodevelopmental and mental health conditions.
