Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Behavior: What Should We Know

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a sensory and communication disorder, often presents with what many consider atypical and challenging behaviors. The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Behavior: What Should We Know TALKS series shares the perspectives of two parents, a therapist, a person with ASD, and a law enforcement officer on what we need to know about ASD and behavior. Increase crucial conversations via this mini-documentary to help spur dialogue, recognize inclusion, and understand the unique challenges and successes people with autism, their families, and the community face by hearing from those with first-hand experience on the topic.

Consider also pairing your TALKS experience with Communication Quick Tips as a portable communication reference. Communication Quick Tips are 3″x5″, printed back-to-back, and in color, and can comfortably fit in a wallet or purse for prompt access for when someone is communicating with an individual with ASD in the community.
