TALKS
THINK+change TALKS are provocative, in-person or video shorts on topics of interest to, or emerging issues for, people with IDD and those who care for and work with them.

ASD and Behavior
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a sensory and communication disorder, often presents with what many consider atypical and challenging behaviors. ASD and Behavior TALKS series shares the perspectives of two parents, a therapist, a person with ASD, and a law enforcement officer on what we need to know about ASD and behavior.
