Resources for Autistic Individuals and their Families Impacted by War and Displacement
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.
