About the Presenter
Alison Bourdeau is currently a clinician for FAU CARD and
facilitates two social groups for adults with autism spectrum
disorder (ASD). She is in her third year in a counseling doctoral program at FAU with a research focus on the impacts of social opportunities for adults with ASD. Her graduate degrees are in special education and marriage & family therapy.
The presentation will directly address the diverse population of adults with autism who do not often get recognized in counseling practice or research. Clinicians will be provided the opportunity to obtain useful and relevant tools for working with this population. There have been significant developments in effective treatment for adults with autism that many counselors are unfamiliar with that require the specific attention and training made available during this professional development opportunity.
At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:
-Understand and identify the unique treatment needs of adults with ASD.
-Learn about the latest evidence-based and best practice treatment strategies for addressing social deficits for this population.
-Learn about the latest evidence-based and best practice treatment strategies for addressing common comorbid diagnoses for this population.
