THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUTONOMY FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH ASD WITHOUT INTELELCTUAL DELAY
M.A., Ph.D. Director
Sexologist and psychologiST
Acquiring autonomy for individuals with ASD without intellectual delay is an essential objective that must be given priority and encouraged early on. Although they have many talents and skills, they experience difficulty in the areas of social skills and communication, as well as have deficits in their executive functioning skills. These may however, also interfere with the development of their autonomy.
This conference, which is addressed primarily to parents of individuals with ASD without intellectual delay and professionals who work with them, will cover the following topics:
- How an individual’s functioning in daily life is affected by the presence of an ASD
- The objectives that must be prioritized to encourage the attainment of autonomy
- The strategies and hands-on tools that can help to foster the development of autonomy for individuals with ASD without intellectual delay, in order to assist them towards achieving self-determination.
