Mick Grimley is the dean of education at Torrens University, which has recently introduced a Graduate Certificate in Education (Autism), specifically to impart skills and knowledge to teachers and other professionals working with children with autism.
Some of the stated outcomes of this course are to:
- Apply a person-first perspective to analyse and problem solve issues and challenges.
- Identify and critically analyse biases, prejudices and assumptions associated with autism in society and educational practice.
- Analyse, design and evaluate inclusive, ethical and effective learning environments.
- Demonstrate specialised knowledge of autism theory.
