Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
This presentation will look at the role disability plays in the lives of the people we serve. Given what we know about how intellectual disability works, it is understandable why so many approaches simply fail. The goal of this presentation is for DSPs to respect someone’s disability and see how to adapt their work to accommodate someone’s learning needs. Practical examples will be given.
