Brought to you by the Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA), this training’s primary objective is to provide strategies to support and facilitate successful pediatric and dental appointments for individuals with autism. The training reviews evidenced based practices, with a focus on visual supports and communication, to promote and increase autistic individuals’ access to medical and dental care across preventative visits and emergent situations. Furthermore, the training explains and demonstrates how to use the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) Communicating Visually in Pediatrics: A Step-by-Step Tool for Support Patients and Caregivers. The training is intended for medical and pediatric dental providers and families of autistic children. It is offered in conjunction with DNEA’s initiative to provide free copies of Communicating Visually in Pediatrics to Delaware medical and dental providers .
