Class 1

The Quiet Storm: The Kallos Model Marginalization of Black Boys in STEM & Ethics

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM EST

African American (AA) males are one of the most underrepresented minorities in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Examining social influences that hinder equitable participation of AA males in STEM therefore remains a priority for school social workers, the education system in general and for the STEM world as a whole. 

This class will help participants understand the current demographics, statistics, and policies that impact minorities, especially AA males, in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia; to be able to understand and apply the Kallos Model to effectively advocate for AA boys within schools and communities that incorporates a culturally specific School Social Work Practice Model called the Kallos Model; be able to apply the knowledge gained for ethically-informed, evidenced based-practice at the micro, mezzo and macro level.

Overwhelmed & Over-Stimulated: Working with Late-Diagnosed Autistic Adults

1:45 PM - 4:45 PM EST

This training aims to examine the common experiences and potential needs for late-diagnosed autistic adults, incorporating the lens of the trainer’s personal experiences as well as exploring research on individuals who received an autism diagnosis in adulthood. Autism is a spectrum, and this presentation will focus on those who received a diagnosis later in life, primarily those fitting the Level 1 criteria for support needs. We will discuss barriers to diagnosis, potential presenting concerns leading up to assessment/diagnosis, as well as resources and strategies for working with this client population in a neurodiverse-affirming way.
