Yale autism seminar
I am part of a team that assesses kids ages 2-5 for eligibility for special education (and I am an occupational therapist). Many of our children have autism. I've found this seminar to be very helpful in expanding my knowledge of the disorder especially the topics more medically related (genetics, neuroimaging).
From a mother of a 5 year old low functioning nonverbal autistic son. What a gift from iTunes and Yale.
Awesome FREE information. Now if only it could be free class credit hours... :)
