Intervening with Trauma and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) in Families

This webinar will focus on the intersection of trauma and intellectual and developmental disabilities (e.g., autism, ID, FAS, etc).  This talk will focus on three main areas.  The first will be “myth-busting” of common myths surrounding this population (e.g., the myth that kids who have autism don’t actually feel the trauma).  The second will examine specific interventions and practices that are used for this population and why they are effective.  The last will be resources and in-the-pocket tools you can use to help this population in whatever role you have (e.g., therapists, school providers, legal advocates, etc).
