Video of the Week: Uniquely Human by Dr. Barry Prizant

August 19, 2015 by - Leave your thoughts

In this week’s featured video, we hear from noted ASD researcher and clinician, Dr. Barry Prizant, who discusses some of the challenges faced by individuals with autism and alternative ways to understand and address these challenges. He places a high priority on understanding the perspective of individuals with autism and their families, something that can be a powerful force for change in our service delivery. “There’s no such thing as autistic behavior; It’s all human behavior.” There are lots of prAACtical implications of this perspective and the focus on reflective practices. Enjoy, “Uniquely Human: A Different Way to See Autism and Create Pathways to Success.” Thanks to Presence Learning for producing and hosting this video.
