Improving Social Outcomes for Children with Tourette Syndrome and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders
February 12, 2020 | 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Presented by Azlen Theobald, Psy.D.
An estimated 5% to 10% of the population are affected by neurodevelopmental disorders. Children with disabilities are at risk for peer rejection and stigmatization, which often leads to feelings of depression and isolation. Finding ways to help peers better understand the symptoms and presentation of neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Tourette Syndrome, can greatly improve social outcomes and reduce mental health risk among this vulnerable population. This webinar will focus on strategies to help increase positive social interactions for children with neurodevelopmental differences.
