Very rich in information and very organized and structured and is easy to follow as well. Gives you the opportunity to acquire new concepts and to be up to date in the field of ASD. Enjoyed it a lot!
I thought that this course was very informative for being an overview of ASD. I know that there is so much to learn about Autism, but this course was a great starting block for learning about ASD.

Thank you for such great opportunity to study the ASD in completely new way. I am not American, so it was really wonderful for me, to look at ASD from another side.
I think this course could be a little bit deeper in questions like teaching methods for children with ASD, but this topic is so big, that it`s hard to learn it just in 5 weeks.
Nevertheless, I have finished this course in 1 day, not 5 weeks.
I would like to appriciate for the scholarship, which gave me a Certificate, which I will use in my future work.
Hope to study more about ASD, so I will think about applying to the University of California, Davis, for Master`s degree.
Good luck everybody!

Although it was only a general overview of what autism stands for, this course was quite helpful in explaining the basics. The subject is nevertheless vague even for specialists who cannot exactly point at certain causes or treatments, but it is relieving to know that research is being done and more and more people can receive specialized support for this kind of problems.
It's a pity that one cannot finish the course (that means, do the quizzes) without paying for the certificate, and since I don't need a certificate, I still feel like a lost a bit of what might have been a motivation to pay even more attention to certain aspects of the lessons.
This course was a great overview introduction into ASD. The information was presented so the information was not overwhelming. You begin the course by looking at ASD from a wide-lens down to details. This is recommended for anyone who is interested in learning more about ASD and then to take more details classes as needed. The videos that were part of the course were informative. There was not a lot of discussions nor was this class led by any instructor. I wished it had links to more articles or more in-depth information, especially the weeks on the developmental areas.

This course is an excellent overview that I highly recommend for family members, teachers, friends and carers of individuals with ASD, especially when the child with autism is still very young. However, as an adult with ASD who grew up without early intervention, I am not fully satisfied with the scope of the course. I expected more examples of individuals with ASD along different stages of development as well as severity of symptoms, and more examples of treatments and strategies for both the individual with ASD and their families.

As an autistic female adult myself, I loved the course. t has lots of useful content and easily understood. My only criticism was that it was not mentioned in the sessions how female autism presentation has become more understood in recent years. In the 80's, it was widely agreed upon and taught that Autism only affected males, which we now know is not the case. This has led to an avalanche of females only receiving diagnosis is adulthood, myself included. Please update the course to reflect that. Thanks!

I would like to highlight that the content of the course is well explained. Detailed structure of the course is pretty appreciable and enhancing of the subject knowledge. The quiz provided at the end of every week is a great self knowledge check. What I wish to emphasize at this context is that the area covering the 'Cause' of this Neuro-developmental disorder should be added in the course. Awareness of the cause of any disorder helps to prevent the occurrence of such disorders.

Thanks for the great information. Hope to see more classes with updated information on research and treatment in the future. As a grandmother of a child with Autism, this type of course is much appreciated to counter all the claims and theories that are made in media, books by non-professionals and anecdotal articles coming from either a romanticized view of Autism or playing on the hopes for a miracle cure that is a predictable phase following diagnosis.
