Module One: The Uniqueness of Autism

So, is autism a difference, a disorder or a condition? Whose social rules and values should we follow in a tolerant and accepting diverse society? How can we support people with autism to fulfil their potential as independent and valued citizens?
Autism is unique and fascinating. This introductory course contains essential information for professionals working with people with autism and covers topics including a short history of autism, differences in communication, social understanding and processing, emotional well-being, challenges and strengths.
