Have you had a new person added to your caseload who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), ADHD, Learning disorder, Intellectual disability, or Conduct disorder and wondered how you would approach treatment?  Do you feel like you wish you learned more about the population of individuals living with Intellectual and Neurodevelopmental disabilities?  Perhaps you feel stuck when working to complete a BioPsychoSocial-Spiritual Assessment for an individual diagnosed with ID/DD.  This Continuing Education presentation can help you to feel more confident with the Social Work framework you already know and apply it to your work with this population.  We will move with the individual we are helping away from asking the question “what is wrong with you?” to “what is strong about you?”

With over 18 years of experience practicing social work in the Albany, NY area, she specializes in working with individuals, groups, and staff to use their strengths, talents, and experiences to enhance their lives and those with whom they are connected. Allison began her career working with individuals diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illness at ClearView Center in Albany (now Equinox) before transitioning to work with individuals living with intellectual and or developmental disabilities at Center for Disability Services and later Living Resources. When Allison joined Living Resources in 2006, she joined a newly formed Clinical Department where professional social workers and mental health counselors worked to address the co-occurring mental health, cognitive, and behavioral needs of individuals while closely working with staff in trainings and workshops. Allison was able to use her teaching skills to engage an audience of celebrated staff to broaden their skills while capitalizing on their strengths to bring greater understanding about the neurodevelopmental and mental health aspects about the behaviors of the individuals served at Living Resources. She feels energized when working with people who are open and eager to expand their knowledge and skills to deliver individualized care to a population also eager to grow and learn. As part of the ever developing journey to flourish, she is excited to be part of the Impact ALL training institute at Living Resources to continue her mission to bring education to peers in the field who have an impact on the lives of others every day.
