Children and teens with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are at a higher risk for experiencing other mental health conditions and distress. Often related to the disability, social challenges experienced by these individuals can lead to frustration, loneliness, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, bullying and trauma, along with a myriad of other mental health factors. A positive social environment and positive influence of one's peer group, both within and outside of school, can serve as a protective mechanism against onset of these conditions and is an area that should be incorporated into educational and intervention planning for all individuals with IDD. In this session, the role of social connections will be explored with discussion of interventions across home, school and the community to build a positive ratio of experiences for individuals with IDD to promote and protect mental health.

A leading professional in autism and behavior disorders, Dr. Barbin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Board Certified Behavior Analyst – Doctoral, and Licensed Behavior Analyst. She founded Behavioral Directions, LLC in 2001 and currently serves as Executive Director consulting to parents, educators, and school districts, including schools in the Arlington Diocese, while collaborating across disciplines to promote successful outcomes for those with developmental and behavioral disorders. Through her work, she advocates for disability awareness and provides training to parent and professional groups at the local and national level.
