Very good so far
It is a very good course so far. Some of the materials are very expensive, although you can get a lot out of just the lectures and the downloads. Wish all of the materials were available in one place, as well. As my interest is personal, and not professional, I don't need the full reference materials, just the chapters relevant to the lectures or a broad understanding of the topic. But very interesting and well done otherwise!
Interesting so far...
This is my first time really listening to iTunes U Material for educational purposes, and I love this. The first lecture was great! I was really engaged by what the professor had to say and how he said it, and the topic is very interesting. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Yale Autism Seminar
What a great resource!! I am a retired FP and have an autistic grandson that I help in his care and school work. This series of lectures is very helpful and I am sure every autistic child's parents (and teachers) will benefit from watching the excellant lecturers.
I wish that there could be a way to let the people know it is available. Maybe "Autism Speaks", the non-profit autism group, could mention it in an article in their email and/or magazine. I will check on that.
Thanks for having the courses available.
