STAR Sharing Treatment and Autism Resources
As a child with Asperger's syndrome, I never imagined I would be in a helping profession, or trying to solve the mysteries of living with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for other people, but my life has taken me in many surprising directions. Studying social work and working in the field has presented specific and significant difficulties related to ASD, and challenge me toward continued self-improvement. This presentation looks at the highlights of becoming a neurodevelopmental professional, and reflects on the relationship of the helping professions to people with ASD.
