View the “Whites Only – Racism and Autism,” “Heroism – Refrigerator
Mothers and Autism,” and “Refrigerator Mothers” presentations in the
Reading & Study folder of Module/Week 1, and discuss your reaction
to the presentations and your textbook readings regarding the

In what direction would you like to see the field move in regards to the
diversity of students with ASD and the treatment of families of
children with ASD? How has your biblical worldview framed your opinion?
