Description
With the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) on the rise, clinicians need to learn about the nature and course of ASD and how specific disciplines can contribute to identification and care. They also need to be aware of the impact of sociocultural factors on effective detection. This intermediate workshop helps practitioners identify, assess, and diagnose symptoms of ASD from infancy through early development using a comprehensive developmental approach to evaluation, focusing on state-of-the-art measures and standards of best practice in the field.
Learning Objectives
1. Recognize and define the key features of ASD.
2. Identify common diagnostic differentials and comorbid conditions.
3. Explain the components of a comprehensive developmental evaluation for ASD.
4. Demonstrate knowledge of standards of best practice in the evaluation and treatment planning of ASD.
