A Life Course Perspective on Autism and the Transition to NJLEND CE Event Recognizing Autism Awareness MonthAdulthood: Using Population Level Data to Inform Policy and Practice

 

Anne Roux, MPH
Research Scientist
A.J. Drexel Autism Institute
Drexel University
Philadelphia, PA

There is an urgent need for understanding how life unfolds across the lifespan for people on the autism spectrum. Medical and clinical interventions are vital, but we must also learn about the experiences that help or hinder quality of life for people on the autism spectrum, their families, and our communities. This presentation will apply a life course perspective to frame our understanding of the current science on transition for youth on the autism spectrum, including population-level services research from the National Autism Data Center and findings from transition programs at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute. Policy and practice interventions will also be shared.

Having a Life: Building Social Inclusion for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

 

Matthew Bogenshutz, PhD
Associate Professor
School of Social Work
Partnership for People with Disabilities
Virginia Commonwealth University
Richmond, VA

For most of us, time spent in social activities with friends and family makes for our fondest memories. While we continue to make strides in supporting community life for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) in many ways, most people with IDD still find it hard to truly become part of the social fabric of their communities. This presentation will explore what we know about how people with IDD are socially included in their communities and examine strategies and promising practices to support people with IDD to truly find a place in our shared social life.

Making Employment a Reality: We’re All Responsible

Derek Nord, PhD, FAAIDD
Director and Associate Professor
Indiana Institute on Disability and Community
Indiana University
Bloomington, IN

For many people with disabilities, employment is fraught with barriers that can have lifelong consequences of poverty, dependence, and exclusion. No one person, family member, professional, or policy maker is responsible for making employment a reality. This responsibility rests on all of our shoulders. This presentation will challenge attendees’ values, expectations, and approaches to supporting people with disabilities in employment, including those with significant barriers. It will also highlight important ways the various stakeholders can hold each other accountable to ensure that our collective attention is focused on what really matters - a quality life.
