About this item

Developed by Autism CRC, best practice strengths-based approach to the assessment and diagnosis of Autism.

Course/Activity Information

This course was developed by Autism CRC and is hosted by Speech Pathology Australia for the benefit of members.

The course is relevant for any speech pathologist, undergraduate student or medical and allied health practitioner supporting individuals and families with an autism assessment and/or a consensus team diagnosis, who want to provide a best practice strengths-based approach.

The course delivers a consistent overview of the entire clinical pathway with deeper dives highlighting the importance of a speech pathologists’ role, from assessment of functioning to sharing findings. The learning framework and module objectives will assist learners to align their practice with the Guideline recommendations. Vital content is linked to examples of the Guideline in practice.

To remain relevant, Guidelines must be updated periodically, given that community views and preferences, as well as research evidence, change over time. In 2023, a second edition of the National Guideline for the assessment and diagnosis of autism in Australia was released which builds on, rather than replaces, the evidence that informed the 2018 edition. A microlearning module to step you through the updates made to the Recommendations is included in this learning program.

Upon successful completion of the program, participants will:

  • Gain an insight into the different clinical professions involved in the assessment and diagnosis pathway
  • View engaging video interviews with practical applications from clinical professionals who have implemented the Guideline framework
  • Understand the flexibility of the diagnostic pathway through hypothetical case studies
  • Access supporting tools and resources designed to underpin and support your guideline implementation
  • Discover additional professional learning activities to build on your clinical assessment and diagnostic skills
  • Reflect on the alignment of your clinical practice with the Guideline recommendations

This course is brought to you by Autism CRC, developed with funding from the Department of Social Services.
