Join Adam and Dr. Stephanie Holmes today as they speak about behaviors and functions of behavior as keys to understanding what behaviors are communicating. Adam discusses the importance of different modalities of communication for the empowerment of persons on the autism spectrum.
During this time of social distancing, many families do not have access to their supports.
Adam and his team at Answers Now have added many features to their app to connect families and get vital information to families for children on the spectrum. Free resources are available at https://www.getanswersnow.com/blog where parents can learn about telling their child with autism about COVID-19, dealing with unexpected changes in plans, working with students at home in virtual schooling. This tool also has other features to connect families to other families in an online community moderated by experts in the field.
