Integration of Treatment for NeurodiverseYouth and Young Adults

Friday, December 8, 2023, 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST

December 8, 2023 @ 11:00 am 1:30 pm

The Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership (CT BHP) in conjunction with the Connecticut Hospital
Association is proud to sponsor a virtual, professional forum that explores the integration of treatment
for neurodiverse youth and young adults. This presentation will examine neurodiversity, the diagnoses
of intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder, and eligibility criteria for services provided by
the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services (DDS). It will also review inclusive and sensitive
treatment approaches for this population and present a personal story touching on mental health,
autism, and a life of advocacy.

Join leading experts to:

  • Better understand neurodiversity and neurodivergence.
  • Develop insight into the intellectual disability diagnosis, DDS eligibility, and the service delivery process.
  • Discover components of the positive behavior support model.
  • Identify the importance of a trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive approach.
