Description: This course provides an overview of how to provide strengths-based, neurodiversity-affirming services to autistic children. The strategies and goals addressed in this course are not focused on establishing compliance or fixing deficits identified on standardized tests, but rather on helping autistic children learn and develop new skills through meaningful interactions with the important people in their lives.
Following this training, participants will be able to:
1. Summarize strategies for providing strengths-based, neurodiversity affirming services to autistic children.
2. Explain the racial and gender disparities in getting an autism diagnosis.
3. Describe the differences in how autistic children play, learn, communicate, acquire language, process sensory input, and interact with others and the impact this knowledge has on therapy services.
