Comorbid Mental Health Conditions #1885
Monday, December 5, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Nearly three-quarters of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) also have another medical or psychiatric condition. This is called ‘comorbidity’, and the conditions are often called ‘comorbid’ conditions.Comorbid conditions can appear at any time during a child’s development. Some might not appear until later in adolescence or adulthood. Sometimes these comorbid conditions have symptoms that affect how well ASD therapies and interventions work. So it’s important to identify the conditions and treat them separately. This training will investigate the most common comorbid conditions and how to address them. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide childcare at this training.
This training will take place in the Media Center.
