All children have a right to be protected from abuse, but children on the autism spectrum can present professionals with particular difficulties in identifying abuse as some of the indicators of abuse can appear to be the same as some indicators of autism.
This Department for Education project aims to increase the quality of safeguarding services across England, leading to early interventions to prevent abuse and neglect of children on the autism spectrum. The project has already held a very successful conference, and released a Safeguarding booklet.
This online module builds on from the booklet, taking approximately 60-120 minutes to complete, giving a certificate of completion and percentage pass mark from our online assessment.
