Autism and Masks - making an informed decision
Many of us feel overwhelmed as we are making decisions about schools, jobs, and day services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. We know more of our population is at a higher risk for developing severe complications and that 1 in 6 children/adults who have autism can not wear a mask or social distance.

Join us for a discussion on the science behind wearing masks, assessing the risk for masks vs no masks, and strategies to help your loved one tolerate mask-wearing.

He is a practicing infectious disease physician and also conducts research on the emergence of infectious diseases and how we can understand, predict, and mitigate these threats

Muchos nos sentimos agobiados conforme hemos tenido que tomar decisiones de nuestros trabajos, escuelas y programas de servicios para nuestros hijos y nuestros adultos con discapacidades de desarrollo. Sabemos que nuestros seres queridos son considerados de alto riesgo y tienen mayores posibilidades de desarrollar complicaciones y que uno de cada 6 niños o adultos con autismo no usan una máscara para cubrirse la cara y tampoco mantienen una sana distancia.

Participe en la discusión que tendremos sobre lo que la ciencia dice de usar máscaras. Los riesgos que hay entre usar y no usar máscaras y las estrategias que pudieran ayudar a sus seres queridos a tolerar máscaras.
