Advice for Professionals
Professionals are basically people who work.

This includes doctors, nurses, police, school staff, store clerks, state agencies, and many others.

People who work with people should know how to work with all types of personalities and abilities.

It is difficult if they do not know how to work with people who learn differently. It is not helpful.

These people should receive training. For example, if a person has autism, he would want to find a doctor who understands his way of communication or other individual needs.

It is important to teach people about how to best help people with disabilities.

This page has some links about professionals needing training or advice.
