  • Introduction

    The NHS Education for Scotland Autism Training Framework, Optimising Outcomes, is a framework for all staff working with people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, their families and carers.

    The Framework identifies 4 levels:

           1.  Informed Practice Level

           2.  Skilled Practice Level

           3.  Enhanced Practice Level 

           4.  Expertise in Autism Practice Level

    This e-learning course, created in collaboration with NHS Fife Psychological Services, covers the Informed Practice Level.  This describes the essential knowledge and skills required by all staff working in health and social care settings including the individual’s home.


    There is a short assessment at the end of this course.  Remember to take a screenshot of your final assessment score to confirm your completion of this course.  The guide below will help you if you are unsure how to do this.
