Webinar: Trauma Informed Care for Individuals with Autism

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are at a significantly increased risk of victimization and are more likely to exhibit symptoms of trauma than typical peers. This webinar will discuss the factors that make individuals with ASD more vulnerable to traumatic events. Attendees will learn about the importance of considering trauma in the development of living and working environments, as well as in the development of behavior plans.
