DS-ASD 101: Understanding the Basics of Down Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder

Thursday, August 9, 2018 -
1:15pm to 4:15pm

Down syndrome and autism can be challenging disabilities separately; when combined, the challenges can be quite complex and oftentimes are misunderstood by the family members and professionals in the individual’s life. This workshop will take a look at what we know about DS-ASD, explore basic behavioral red flags from childhood through adulthood, help you learn more about the differences in thought processes and the strategies that can be used, and discuss the importance of building a support network and care team throughout the lifespan.
