Note on language use: This course was developed at the time AANE used the terms “Asperger/Autism Profile to describe the community we serve. Language use around autism has evolved and the organization now identifies those in the “autism” community as our constituents. We want to recognize people’s freedom to choose the language they use to identify or describe themselves.
