Through the Lens of Autism: Exploring Priority Areas and Building Support for Everyday Challenges

Through research and experience, we have learned that implementing the right tools can help us be better supporters for people on the autism spectrum. But what are those tools? How do you know what the needs are so you can begin to gather effective resources? This year’s Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) training needs survey asked you to share the top areas of need that people on the autism spectrum experience. As a response to the survey, this seminar will provide a deeper look into a variety of priority areas, including communication, mental health, online safety, and family systems that impact everyday life. We will invite you to join in the conversation and share your experiences, successes, and resources. Together we will expand our understanding of key challenges that people are facing and brainstorm multiple ways to provide effective and meaningful supports.

Wednesday, April 12, 2023, from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
