While Autism Spectrum Disorders are rising and usually diagnosed by early childhood, some young adults or even older adults are later identified with ASD. This workshop will address typical family experiences with ASD based on clinical interviews and play observations within the play therapy session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify typical reactions of families when their loved ones first get diagnosed with ASD
  • Confront the myth that adolescents or young adults outgrow their special challenges across multiple social environments
  • List several typical challenges that families face with regard to their future family planning (education, jobs/career, independent living, financial.
  • Identify play-based interventions that ASD families can and do engage in
