Autism, Intellectual Disability and supporting the Street Community
Autistic individuals and individuals with intellectual disabilities often lack resources and support and a number of them will experience homelessness as adults. In this online course created by shelter and day program/drop-in centre workers and an autism specialist, we provide information on how to recognize and support those who struggle with verbal communication or may have sensory processing differences. There are scenarios at the end of the course to help prepare you for common situations and give you options to try when managing conflict between community members.
