-define understandings of personal and communal access needs
-big picture thinking
I identify as autistic and am CAMFT/CABBS Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who came into this work after discovering my own needs as a neurodivergent person. I have worked for a decade as a neurodivergent educator with students experiencing PTSD, trauma, anxiety, stress, autism, and ADHD. I bring my personal experience as a neurodivergent learner to my work and consult individuals and families via teleconferencing. 
There will be one final project in which students design, write, draw, their ideal accessible community in whatever format speaks to them. Details will be mentioned at the start of the course. 
Bring something to type or write with for note-taking if that helps you remember and learn.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Although the history of autism is fascinating, it is incredibly painful and difficult. The history of autism includes institutionalization and discrimination. Please note this topic will be discussed with sensitivity and an open space for learners to process their emotions or reactions both in and out of class will be facilitated.
