Description

This workshop will provide an overview of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and how these ACES impact autistic individuals. The presenter will review how ACES can have an ongoing impact on an individual throughout the lifespan and will particularly emphasize possible differences in symptom presentation based on autism alone versus autism and developmental trauma. Case examples will be utilized to apply the concepts and for feedback. The presenter will conclude with an overview of strategies for working with autistic individuals who have mental health conditions resulting from previous adverse childhood experiences.
