Being An Informed Supporter: What You Should Know About Autism
TRAINING DESCRIPTION: This training is for professionals looking to increase their knowledge in supporting individuals with autism across the spectrum and lifespan. There are more than 55,000 people with autism living in the Commonwealth receiving services. Chances are you have probably touched the life of at least one of those people.
In the past decade, ODP/BAS has engaged in efforts to better understand what information and tools people need to effectively support individuals with autism. Time and again, the following areas have been identified: Social Skills, Challenging Behavior & Mental Health, Employment, Family Systems, Community Engagement, and Communication. Through research and experience, we will explore each of these topics ultimately providing attendees with tools and strategies that will enhance the support for individuals in their homes, community, jobs, and school.
