Treating Traumatic Stress Disorders in Children with Developmental Disabilities

Nov 6 2014 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Research suggests that children with developmental disabilities (DDs), including autism spectrum disorders and intellectual disabilities, are more likely than their typically developing peers to be assaulted or maltreated (Sullivan, 2009, Turner et al., 2011). For example, children with special healthcare needs may be bullied at a rate 1.5 to 2 times more than non-impaired youth (van Cleave & Davis, 2006). However, there is relatively little research, writing or service provision designed specifically for children with co-occurring trauma and DDs (Mevissen & de Jongh, 2010).
