The myths and fallacies about Asperger syndrome will be explored.

We also include the range of conditions which people with ASD often have alongside their main diagnosis.

We examine the current understanding of the biological basis of Asperger syndrome and why it tends to have a high heritability. We will also examine why there are gender differences in the presentation of Asperger’s in men and women.

Brilliant course. As a busy, working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, educational videos, important information you can't find online. The brilliant thing is that even after finishing the course you still can go back to your modules and view the videos again.
