Management of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Childhood and Adolescence

This comprehensive online course has been developed by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) especially for GPs working in rural and remote Australia. Urban GPs interested in the topic would also benefit from completing this course. (You will need RRMEO access.)

The course is presented in three self-paced modules. Each will take about two hours to complete.

Module 1:Clinical aspects, screening, diagnosis, and management 
Module 2:Therapies, ongoing management, professional support
Module 3:Rural, remote and Indigenous perspectives; and managing behaviour

Content includes cases studies, video interviews with parents, researchers and practitioners, written information, links to other sources of information, and knowledge review using multiple choice questions.

Accreditation: PDP points

Successful completion of the modules entitles members of ACRRM’s Professional Development Program to two core points per module.
