About Our Guest:
Brian A. Wong, a Washington, DC native, is a Support Counselor at Jubilee Association of Maryland located in Kensington, MD, an agency that provides residential services to adults with developmental and intellectual challenges. Having overcome his challenges with Asperger’s has helped him a great deal in his job.
In May 2013, he received his B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Counseling from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia where he was a student in the College Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. During college, Brian volunteered in hospice and at bereavement camps for families and children. He has presented on the topic of bereavement at the Autism Society National Conference in July 2013. He has been published by the Autism Society of America, ExpertBeacon.com, and twice by Autism Now (a national initiative of The Arc of the United States). After graduation and prior to working with adults with developmental challenges, Brian interned in psychiatric rehabilitation in the Washington, DC area; he led classes in a day program, including two workshops on bereavement and a class on grieving mental illness, and interned in supported employment for individuals with mental health and co-occurring substance use issues.
Brian plans to eventually pursue his Ph.D in Clinical Psychology and start an agency with a mission of helping people with developmental and intellectual challenges and their families who are either anticipating or grieving the death of a loved one, using evidence-based practices.
