The course will address the critical professional skills of how to collaborate with and effectively support families that have a child with autism from diagnosis through adulthood. Students, in their professional careers, will encounter various types of families (i.e., cultural diversity, family structure, etc.) and the need to consider family factors in intervention and support strategies is essential. This course will also address 'special topics' in programming for children, adolescents and young adults, and further prepare service providers to create appropriate curriculum throughout the lifespan for individuals with ASD.
