Spectrum Disorders

DEVS 2032

Course description

Students explore the etiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), as well as incidence according to ethnicity, common signs, symptoms, and characteristics. Students examine evidence-based services and supports that promote high-quality life experiences and reduce barriers to full community participation. Through participation in community events related to FASD and ASD awareness, students develop an understanding of challenges individuals and families face to secure funding and supports. Navigation of the justice system and community resources to help individuals involved in the justice system are discussed.
