The Autism Society of America is proud to continue our Coronavirus Information Series with a discussion on the “Four A’s.” or autism, allergies, ADHD, and asthma, and how to deal with these particular issues while managing life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On April 30, Autism Society of America CEO Christopher Banks sat down to a conversation with Dr. Stephen Shore, full-time professor at Adelphi University and adjunct at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, to talk about how individuals and families can make the transition an expended period of time at home smoothest, as well as how to address major changes to the lives of individuals with autism during this challenging time.
