Autism – Developing an Understanding Webinar Part 1
$20.00 Or MEMBER PLAN (Starting at $9.95 a month/viewer)
Trainer: Kalyn Falk, MA
This webinar begins with a brief overview of the fundamental aspects of autism - characteristics of people on the spectrum, appropriate terms for working in the field, common myths and approaches, as well as new diagnostic criteria. When the DSM-5 was published in 2013, one of its most important changes was in its understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This webinar will review those changes that include the removal of pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified and Asperger's, new diagnostic criteria, and implications regarding communication. It will also consider critiques and frequently asked questions regarding the Autism Spectrum Disorders.
