Abuse and Autism Spectrum Disorder (Susan Wilczynski)

A presentation by Dr. Susan Wilczynski delivered at the 2019 Michigan Autism Conference. The open-access video below does not contain embedded questions or interactions like the CEU and coursepack versions.

Abstract
Individuals with disabilities are at significantly greater risk for abuse than the general population. This presentation addresses the unique challenges of assessing, implementing prevention, and addressing abuse that involves individuals with ASD. In addition, societal variables such as power differentials often existing between the roles of individuals with ASD and their care providers or limited resources to address abuse in our communities will be discussed because they place individuals with ASD at greater risk. Strategies practitioners and parents can use for decreasing the likelihood abuse will occur will be identified. Resources for increasing knowledge about abuse and disabilities will be provided.
