Supporting Children with Autism During Medical Visits and Procedures - (2024)
Includes a Live Web Event on 08/07/2024 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
The design of this session is to build the confidence of attendees to engage more comfortably and more frequently with individuals with autism. The goal is that attendees leave having gained a better understanding of common characteristics of autism to build a rapport with their patients, build on patient strengths and areas of interest, and support their individual and unique needs to provide the best care. Detailed methods and interventions will be presented, and time will be given for attendees to apply the knowledge during the session. Through the use of discussion and case examples, attendees will consider how to implement ideas in their medical settings to increase support and care for individuals with autism.
