Abstract
Education has a dual role in autism: compensating for failures in intuitively understanding and
benefiting from the social world, and providing access to culturally valued skills and knowledge.
Professionals need an understanding of autism to identify special needs accurately and to provide
appropriate education. Autism presents particular challenges to inclusion but can be managed in
different settings. Autism-specific education needs to be specified carefully rather than just claimed.
