Training taking into account the recommendations of good professional practices of the High Authority of Health and adapting to the needs of professionals and families.
Autism spectrum disorders are neurological disorders that affect, for example, communication and social interactions in children. The number and type of symptoms, the severity of the symptoms, the age of onset and the level of function vary from one person to another. The DSM-5 (2013) indicates that autism spectrum disorders (TSA) are characterized by:
- Persistent deficits in the field of communication and social interactions, in multiple contexts,
- Restricted and repetitive nature of behaviors, interests or activities.
The third autism plan 2013-2017 had already stressed the importance of training professionals working with people with autism. This axis has been reinforced as part of the 2018-2022 Autism Strategy.
