Autism & Education


Autism and Education

There are seven million exceptional children with special needs in our American school system, such as children with autism spectrum development. Truly meeting the needs of these children requires a commitment to integrating advances in educational science, neuroscience, and social policy.

The UC Davis School of Education is home to Professor Peter Mundy, an expert in the education and development of children with autism. As a developmental and clinical psychologist, Mundy has been working on defining the the major dimensions of autism for the past 32 years.
