Preservice Health Training for Medical Students – Case 2: Jay

The Introductory Preservice Health Training modules are designed to provide an overview of treating individuals with developmental disabilities. The Jay case presents a child with autism. In this case, communication challenges are paramount. Behaviors that co-occur for some children with autism are both modeled and described. The tutorials use multi-media, virtual patient instruction.

As you work through each case, you make decisions about how to conduct the examination. You will also be asked to answer specific questions related to developing a treatment plan.
