16This lecture is inspired by the work of my mentor, Dr.Martine Delfos. Her work in the development of the Socioscheme will be explored whilst explaining her theories such as a disharmonious developmental profile and the Mental Age Spectrum Within 1 Person (MAS1P). By gaining a deeper understanding of where behaviour comes from, instead of accepting it as a pre-determined definition of autism, we can start to see how development can be stimulated instead of stagnated.

Hope is given back to the people on the spectrum and their families.
