I was fortunate to be able to review this course as part of the validation process for Middlesex University. As such I was able to explore in some detail the thinking behind it and the outstanding way the content has been presented and organised to ensure ease of navigation and access through distance learning. It is bound to appeal to those from the UK and overseas who are unable to travel but who wish to study this important topic at an advanced level under the tutelage of such renowned experts in the field. Richard Mills, Director of Research, Research Autism
