Autism & Trauma Connections and Interactions - What Educators Need to Understand

A recent CDC (Centers for Disease Control) report states that 1 in 68 children have autism – an alarming 30% increase since 2012. The number is far more prevalent in males (1 in 42). Individuals with traits on the autism spectrum are at a high statistical risk of developing PTSD as well as other comorbidities that negatively impact their functioning level. As children, they are five times more likely to be bullied or abused than neurotypical individuals. This session will help professionals in a school setting increase their awareness of the often hidden vulnerabilities with this growing group of children with hyper-reactive brains living in, what can be considered, an “aversive intense world.”

OBJECTIVES:

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Identify connections between the effects of trauma and ASD
  • Create solutions and interventions for the traumatized autistic child addressing difficulties with transitions, sensory processing, and other environmental stressors
  • Provide improved linkage of schools with mental health and other agencies supporting the developmentally challenged

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

Craig McCullough has been a counselor educator for the past 20 years working with children and families in various settings.  These have included schools, residential day treatment facilities, inpatient hospital programs, community-based models and a traditional psychotherapy practice.  He has specialized using various trauma-focused approaches.  With the rise in the diagnosis of autism, Craig became more exposed to clients who were on the spectrum.  He soon discovered the conventional wisdom surrounding autism to be not entirely adequate in appropriately treating the social and emotional struggles of this population.  His family has also been given the challenge and privilege of raising a daughter diagnosed with Asperger’s – which has provided him additional insights.
