Impact Of COVID On Mental Health (2 CEs)

Impact of COVID on Mental Health (2 CEs)

COVID has completely reshaped the world that we have been living in for the past 12 months and brought with it changes and unintended consequences that have profoundly changed the lives of almost every single person in the world. For individuals with autism and other special needs, and those responsible for providing care, education and services to support their growth and development, those changes have been even more pronounced.

While many in the education and healthcare field have adopted and adapted to methods of delivering services remotely in some form or another, very little attention has been paid to the impact of COVID on mental health related issues. In our webinar, you will learn from Dr. Deborah Coehlo, PhD, C-PNP, CMHS, CFLE how to identify the impact of COVID on Mental Health and address with simple (yet effective) strategies to mitigate the symptoms in home, school and clinic-based settings.

Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
