Focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder: Training Videos

Please click this link (https://www.med.unc.edu/ahs/pearls/service/en-espanol/ to access "Focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)," a series of educational videos for professionals and families of individuals with autism. This work is available for free and was made possible by the Hyatt Rotary Club Public Service Award, UNC Carolina Center for Public Service; Partners of the Americas, Chapters in La Paz, Cochabamba, Utah, North Carolina, and New Mexico; RAFT Altiplano; and Hospital Arco Iris.

These educational videos are divided into three series: (1) assessment and diagnostic procedures; (2) intervention and therapy strategies; and (3) medical considerations for individuals with autism. The videos are intended for a wide audience, including: (1) students in fields related to autism; (2) professionals, such as therapists, psychologists, doctors, and teachers; and (3) family members, including parents or other family members of individuals with autism. This work was created with the country of Bolivia in mind; however, much of the information applies to the international community.

You are welcome to use these videos however is most useful to you, whether that be for supplementary materials for university courses, training events for professionals, or family support groups. You may watch all of the videos or just one video to match your needs and objectives. Feel free to share the link with your colleagues.

Feel free to contact us at formaciĆ³n.en.autismo@unc.edu as you use these videos to tell us how they can be improved or what other areas of support would be helpful.
