Autism 209: Crisis Supports and Autistic Individuals Without Intellectual Impairment

October 15, 2020
Facilitator: Gary Stobbe, MD, Seattle Children’s Autism Center

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).
