Learning Objectives & Course Description
In this course we will review components of allyship, including power, privilege, cultural competency, and how these components intersect with models of disability. We review the influence of intersectionality, what it means to elevate autistic voices, and steps clinicians can take to recognize and leverage privilege. This course will also review the professional humility, professional ethics, components of professional collaboration, and resources and additional readings that highlight the Autistic community’s perspectives on practice.
After attending participants will be able to:
Describe concepts of power and privilege and their relationship to allyship
Describe the importance of actively listening to multiple perspectives and creating equitable spaces for difficult conversations
