CSD 625: Autism and Developmental Disabilities
This course will introduce basic organics and genetics to include genetic linkage and mapping, an appreciation of genetic variations and population genetics in medicine, and an understanding of the basic genetic foundation upon which treatments might be available. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) will develop from the genetics discussion and will include assessment and treatment of individuals diagnosed on the spectrum, with a range of possible treatments to include augmentative and alternative communication. Implementation is by lecture, discussion, and demonstration.
