Life was a struggle for families of Ukrainians with disabilities before the war. It’s even harder now.
Many of us are deeply concerned about the war and continuing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. This situation can be especially challenging for Ukrainian families with disabilities including autism.

I have seen documentaries about this resource. It has helped people who have experienced trauma in war in different places in the world. It has helped soldiers who suffer from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), it has helped American parents whose children have been killed in school shootings. It has helped people with severe physical pain (back pain, debilitating headaches), too.
Ukrainian friends: please take a moment to learn about this and begin to practice it daily. It may look funny at first, but it is very effective.

Children and families impacted by war and displacement are likely experiencing severe trauma, and responses may include anxiety, sadness, shame, difficulty concentrating, feeling numb, insecurity, and physical pain. These responses may be heightened for autistic individuals. Our resources include three main categories: social narratives, visual supports (templates for daily routines and choices), and coping strategies. They are designed to help provide understanding during these chaotic times and offer routines that may bring comfort or familiarity.
These resources are designed to be viewed/used on a mobile device given printing inaccessibility.

This podcast episode came from a Zoom call with Dr. Greg Hanley that was recorded on March 29th, 2021. As I mention at the outset, this call was the brainchild of Celia Heyman. She asked Greg to join the members of the ABA Study Group and the Behavioral Observations Patreon members for a special Q and A session, and lucky for us, he obliged.

ACT has been contacted by members of the Ukrainian autism community desperate for help in developing ‘Social Stories’ to explain to autistic children what is happening, bewildered and terrified by bombings and the total dislocation of their lives. Even convincing children to go into bomb shelters is extremely difficult in many cases.
At ACT we know that are a powerful tool but they need to be written by people who have been trained by Carol Gray, the originator of the Social Stories methodology. Carol Gray is a great friend of ACT, so we asked her to help.
