UK: Comparative Perspectives on Autism and Well-Being

This course examines literature and research findings for evidence that supports the treatment of children and youth with autism in a variety of settings.  Students’ clinical and educational experiences are used as a basis to examine the efficacy and effectiveness of intervention through a strength-based lens. Advances in strength-based approaches including health and education will be examined and a comparative analysis will be conducted.
