Course Attribute

I edited the course description and shortened it.
gharris (Tue, 24 Nov 2015 17:28:30 GMT): Rollback: "... how speech-language pathologists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ASD," is prominent under the "Explanation of How the Course Differs from Similar Courses at GW" heading of this form, but that subject matter is not reflected in the course description. I want to make sure the course description accurately reflects course content. Also, course description should be very brief, i.e., 1-2 sentences summarizing the main themes covered.
