Online Safety Manual

Online life is rife with danger, and it can be difficult for families and professionals working with teens and adults with autism to monitor the risks these individuals are taking in the virtual world. Education, employment and even social opportunities all utilize and, in many cases, require an online presence, so it’s imperative that those with autism better understand what types of activities to avoid and how to be safe when online. Getting knowledgeable about internet safety and arming them against the obvious dangers can build a foundation for the support they will need to safely navigate online. Made possible by NEXT for AUTISM, SARRC’s Online Safety Manual offers an approachable curriculum that can be used to teach individuals with ASD the important skills needed to safely interact online.
