IPV and autism

This is the very reason I continue to advocate for training on autism throughout social work education. If you're working in DV, homelessness, veterans affairs, family and educational services, community mental health, post-secondary support, gender diversity, you're working with autistic persons who need culturally competent support. Social work education generally disregards this community. I've been trying to get my NASW chapter to respond to my requests to provide training to no avail.Thank you for the article!

Why not Adult Protective Services?

In almost every state, there are Adult Protective Services that include services to adults with disabilities. Find out what your state law is by going to www.napsa.org . With any adult, under 60 with a disability or over 60, the adults right to consent to services or refuse services is the most important value of the program, at least in Illinois. Every social worker needs to learn about APS and mandated reporting and the advocacy and protection the program provides.
