The Autism Perspective by Prof Michael Fitzgerald

Persons with Autism have the right to have their mental health and care needs provided by people who are educated to understand the special mind-set of persons with Autism.

It is critical that these mental health professionals understand the different perspective of people with Autism and the world that persons with Autism exist in. If these mental health professionals are not aware of these differences they will misunderstand persons with Autism and cause great distress to them.

Treatments have to be given from an Autism specific perspective.
