Throughout the school year, Indiana Resource Center for Autism hosts free family support webinars using expertise from across the state. Presentations will cover topics identified by family members to be of particular interest.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that has strong overlap with mental health issues. Those with ASD are at higher risk for almost every mental health disorder, except substance abuse. In addition, the impact of having an individual with ASD can cause increased family stress. This presentation will focus on recognizing and proactively addressing mental health factors so that the care of the individual with ASD and their family is optimized. Register Now
