To be able to recognise criteria for diagnosing autism in a patient who may have this; 2. To understand that autism is a highly genetic disorder (always check family traits) and that neurobiological correlates are different than in the general population; 3. To appreciate the similarities with and differences between autism and other diagnoses in mental health; 4. To appreciate that: autism lies on a spectrum of severity, that it is relatively common; not an illness, but a disorder and only seen as such when it interferes with functioning (dysfunction being the tell-tale sign of whether to provide a diagnosis or not); 5. To appreciate that whilst medication cannot "treat" autism, CBT is helpful and interventions beginning in childhood even more effective.
