Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) impact multiple areas of functioning, demanding a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and intervention. With the prevalence on the rise, clinicians need to learn how to screen for and detect ASD, and to be aware of the impact of socio-cultural factors on effective detection. This workshop will help practitioners identify, assess, and diagnose symptoms of ASD using a comprehensive developmental approach focusing on state of the art measures and standards of best practice.

CE Hours: 3

Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  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
