Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit. Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviors that are quite challenging to understand and address. The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and their family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices and happiness.
Gary S. Mayerson, Founding Attorney, Mayerson and Associates, answers questions about guardianships and adults with autism spectrum disorder.
Questions addressed include:
1) Is there anybody responsible for helping adults who are having crisis behavior? 2) What happens in a crisis situation if the family has no guardianship and the individual is over 18? 3) Is there emergency or temporary guardianship for a situation like this? 4) If I want to obtain emergency or temporary guardianship, how would I do that? 5) What's the advantage of seeking guardianship before a child turns 18?
