Podcast: Supporting the support staff, at least a first step

On this week’s podcast, the needs of #autism support staff are discussed. These important members of the community suffer burnout which can impact the quality of the services they provide individuals with ASD. A new study examines how to improve the psychological well being of autism support staff so interventions and prevention of burnout can be developed. In addition, intolerance to uncertainty is highly associated with autism, but in a new study by the Kennedy Krieger Institute, there is now a direct link between this trait and ASD.
