Please join us for Autism 209: Crisis Supports and Autistic Individuals Without Intellectual Impairment, on October 15, 2020
When faced with a crisis, where do autistic individuals turn for support, treatment, services and stabilization? Many autistics who have complex mental health needs are not being served well by the current systems. This session will take a closer look at mental health services – what is available; what are the challenges, gaps and barriers; and what should be done to provide prevention and intervention services to autistics experiencing a mental health crisis. Panelists will be announced in the summer of 2020. Information will address the needs of autistics who do not meet eligibility requirements for Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA).
This month’s Autism 200 lecture will be available through Facebook Live on Seattle Children’s and Seattle Children’s Autism Center’s Facebook pages.
Date: October 15, 2020
Time: 7 to 8:30 p.m. Pacific time
Time will be reserved for audience questions and discussion at the end of the lecture. Questions can be submitted through the comments on the Facebook Live.
Due to the reasonable caution surrounding reducing the spread of COVID-19, this month’s Autism 200 lecture will be only available online through Facebook Live. Please note that there will be no in-person attendance and anyone coming to the hospital will not be permitted entrance to this class. Thanks to everyone for your understanding. Further announcements regarding future Autism 200 lectures will be forthcoming.
