IYS for youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities
developmental disability, IYS, neurodevelopment
QUESTION:

How do IYS sites stand with respect to serving the needs of youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities/problems that start only in childhood like autism. Traditionally, many mental health services have preferred not to serve these youth with the idea that their needs are distinct or that there are other systems to serve individuals with these problems.

KEY TAKE-HOME MESSAGES:

Frayme’s IYS scan did not explicitly ask any questions about whether organizations offer their services to young people with neurodevelopmental disabilities. However, we did have a question about who is included in the “population served”, and if there are any groups or subpopulations that are especially catered to with additional programming or outreach work. So far, none of the organizations interviewed have explicitly mentioned young people with neurodevelopmental delays. That being said, most organizations make a point of mentioning that their services are available to all youth that come to their door seeking help with any mental health and substance use difficulties that they are experiencing.
