Autism information for professionals

GP e-learning

An online e-learning course available to GPs through the Royal College of GPs (RCGP). The module, titled Autism in General Practice, is available free of charge to both members and non-members.

Using video clips of real patients and carers recounting their experiences, the course helps GPs to understand the challenges that people with Autism face on a daily basis. Although focused primarily on caring for adults, this course explores the crucial role of the GP and primary health care team in the diagnosis and management of Autism at all ages, from childhood to old age.

All GPs in Coventry and Warwickshire are encouraged to complete the training.

Autism Spectrum Disorders Toolkit

The Autism Toolkit aims to be a one stop shop, user-friendly guide to autism for primary care professionals, people affected by autism, clinical commissioning groups, as well as interested members of the general public.

NICE Guidance

This quality standard covers health and social care services for adults, young people and children with autism.

Employing people: workplace adjustments

Equality law recognises that bringing about equality for disabled people may mean changing the way in which employment is structured, the removal of physical barriers and/or providing extra support for a disabled worker.

AET (Autism Education Trust)

The AET believes that all children and young people with autism must receive an education which enables them to reach their individual potential to engage in society as active citizens (and that individuals, families and professionals are informed, supported and equipped to enable this to be achieved).
