My work to learn about neurodiversity social movements /advocacy by autistic people has largely been done independently of formal education — but there is some work now to teach Critical Disability /Mad Studies in social work, so these ideas coming up more often.

I’m curious how disability/autism shows up in the Canadian social work education standards?

I’m really interested in how your project fits into the larger history of SW education, too. From what I’ve read, it seems like scholars have been advocating for the further integration of disability-specific curriculum in social work education since the 1950s. Ocurious where autism shows up in the temporal trajectory of this education advocacy.

I enjoyed your presentation and I think it’s a great point, particularly with field sites that have adult clients, they rarely focus on Autism.

Diverse cultural contexts may also influence knowledge on autism (based on my experience in Eswatini, Africa).
