Autism Spectrum Disorder continues to be a focus of concerns from the front line providers to federal Congressional workers in terms of the challenges of assessment, treatment, cost, and future economic consequences given the ever-increasing rise epidemiologically in the population and the perceived lack of treatment options and outcomes in this population. Further, recently changes in the DSM-5 has increased some confusion regarding access to services. This workshop is intended to give an updated review regarding the definitions and related clinical concerns in this disorder and what the front line providers need to know about the current assessment and treatment considerations which can impact on optimized clinical outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to summarize the definition of autism in behavioral terms and neurofunctional terms.
  • Participants will be able to list and explain the most current modes for treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Participants will be able to discuss the likely causative factors contributing the rise in autism rates world-wide.
