Child Study Center Compassionate Care Rounds: "Autism, the Internet, and the Clinician: Tools for the Rabbit Hole"
This presentation will highlight the experience of clinicians and a veteran law enforcement officer who work with people with ASD and other developmental disabilities who engage in unlawful behavior on the internet. Attendees will receive an overview of types of problems that may arise, and ways to help patients avoid such problems. As parents, the participants will discuss their personal experiences with curating the internet exposure and limiting risk for their children, as well as working to prevent their work related trauma from negatively impacting their relationships with their families.
