SERIES DESCRIPTION: Have you ever wondered if your child or a student in your class or caseload has autism in addition to vision loss or deafblindness? Have other service providers or medical professionals suggested that an autism diagnosis should be pursued? You're not alone with those questions. In this series we'll explore the similar characteristics in both profiles through the lens of understanding how sensory losses could explain these “autistic-like” characteristics and discuss which evidence-based practices for autism align with established interventions for learners with vision loss or deafblindness.
