How to communicate with athletes with intellectual disability / Autism?

By Dr. Mrs Cecilia Wong

As sports professionals, we need to work closely with athletes with intellectual disability/autism. Coaches need to train and teach them skills; medical professionals need to provide treatments; dietitians and psychologists need to provide counseling. Success in any of these areas requires effective communicating with this special group. The speaker will describe the characteristics in "Intellectual Disability" and "Autism" populations, and introduce effective tools in communication and counseling.
