Education

PART 1

Never has a disorder received so much attention, research and discussion as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  It seems as if the more we learn about the disorder, the more we need to learn.

What factors account for the high prevalence of rates in ASD among children today?  What are some current treatment methods for Autism?  Support your discussion with research and not opinion

PART 2

We learn parenting skills from many places. Perhaps our biggest influence on our attitude towards parenting is from our parents and how we were raised. We also are influenced by media, science, religion, and other sources.

Our question is, what if a license was required to become a parent, as suggested by David Lykken in our week one readings. What do you think should be required to obtain that license? At first blush you may think this could never happen, and it may not.  But the point is to think of why a license could be needed; think of the benefits, what would be needed to overcome objections. How do values enter in to the discussion?

Use one theory from this list and apply it
