The Intersection of ASD and Mental Health: An Update for 2022
Over the past few decades there has been increasing awareness and research in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). In DSM-V ASD is classified as a neurodevelopmental disorder, with little mention of co-existing psychiatric conditions. However, the literature is informing us that those with ASD are at greatly increased risk of almost every psychiatric condition. This presentation will provide an update on the prevalence and risk factors for individuals with ASD for co-morbid conditions including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder,  ADHD and deficits in executive functioning, gender dysphoria, and suicide. There will also be a focus on therapeutic considerations in treating individuals with ASD.

Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    Identify four psychiatric conditions that are frequently co-morbid with ASD.
2.    Summarize the research on ASD and sexual diversity.
3.    Describe three considerations for therapeutic intervention for those with ASD.
4.    List three important components of a treatment plan when working with individuals with ASD
