About the Course

In this introductory course, the first class of a three-part series, students will immerse themselves in the realm of neurodiversity, focusing on Autism spectrum disorder. Through assigned readings and podcast discussions, participants will gain insight into the multifaceted lived experiences of individuals on the spectrum, exploring their strengths, challenges, and unique perspectives. Engaging in reflective exercises, students will apply their understanding to contemplate strategies for fostering inclusive environments in educational settings. Subsequent parts of the series will delve deeper into classroom strategies and hands-on case studies with current students. Take it as a stand-alone class or all three classes as a comprehensive learning experience.
