Objectives and competences

This programme is designed to offer the essential knowledge for an in-depth understanding of a condition that is often interpreted inaccurately. The increased rate of research production has a significant impact on the early detection and diagnosis of autism and on the establishment of the necessary interventions from a biopsychosocial perspective. This dynamic requires professionals to constantly update and refresh their knowledge in order to ensure high levels of care in different areas of intervention, including social and family settings, psychoeducation, clinical care and across the health system.
