Despite 60 years of research, autism remains a puzzle: many people remain unclear about what it actually is. Even a leading researcher in the field has called it 'the enigma'. This course provides an introduction to autism and Asperger syndrome, examining the diagnostic features that define the condition, some of the research currently taking place and, finally, the interventions and treatments available and how we think.
