Learning outcomes

Learning outcomes

  • To establish the accepted features and behaviours associated with Autistic Spectrum Disorder including Asperger Syndrome, ADHD and Tourette Syndrome

  • To explore a variety of approaches that can support and/or exacerbate the difficulties that learners with these conditions experience

  • To identify an appropriate approach to responding to a learner and reporting when any of these conditions are suspected

  • To reflect on personal preferences attitudes and beliefs associated with the behaviour exhibited by learners with these conditions and consider how these can impact on practice


Icebreaker activity

Icebreaker Activity

  • In small groups you will be using all the information and experience you have of all of the conditions included in this unit.

  • This activity involves matching the information on cards under the headings Title, Definition, Symptoms and Causation.

  • You need to work across all the groups to share views, opinions and gain information about each other.


Question and answer activity

Question and Answer Activity

On your own, design a non-ambiguous question to find out from a partner how they like to learn. You can base this question on your own preferences for learning i.e. reading, working in a group, being shown, trial and error etc., your understanding of learning styles or your understanding of these conditions or ideally a combination of all three.

In pairs identify who will be A and who will be B (A will need to be able to pretend they do not understand the question)


Strategies for supporting people in employment who are on the autistic spectrum including

  • A ask B your question,

    B answer as yourself – this is not a role play

  • B ask A your question,

    A answer as yourself but after you have thought about it for 2 minutes (this will be timed)


Strategies for supporting people in employment who are on the autistic spectrum including

  • A ask B your question again with any modification, expansion or reduction you would like to make from your previous experience

    B answer using images and/or pictures and/or symbols.

  • B ask A your question again with any modifications you would like to make from your previous experience

    A answer as if you have not understood the question – this is a role play!


When may a condition show itself and how

When may a condition show itself and how?

  • Historically in a previous educational setting e.g. school or previous course of learning
