NHS Autism Awareness Module now available on learnPro

An NHS Autism Awareness module is now available on learn pro for both council employees and the wider community. Please see the link below that will take you to the relevant sites. It is under the heading ‘essentials’.

The link to the Council site (for employees) is http://eastlothiancouncil.learnprouk.com

The link to the Community site (for volunteers etc.) is https://community.learnprouk.com

The aim of the module is to ensure that staff have a basic                           understanding of the challenges experienced by people with autism and to provide practical suggestions for supporting people with           autism. The term patient is used a lot in the training as the module was developed for a health setting but the training is still very          relevant.
