Comorbid disorders are very common in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Unfortunately, many of these co-occurring disorders are not recognized, even though many are treatable. Some frequently co-occurring disorders include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, seizure disorders, sensory disorders, sleep disorders and GI disorders.
Treating these co-occurring disorders in the context of a treatment plan for ASD can lighten the burden for the ASD child and family and permit the child to function at a more optimal level at home, school and in the community. This program will be presented by Dr. Clare O’Callaghan, R.N., C.S., Ed.D. – a neuropsychologist and psychiatric nurse in private practice, recently retired from the South End CHC where she was the Clinical Director of the children’s mental health program and the Training Director for the mental health program. She has served on the Board of Directors at League School since 1980. Learn more and register to attend for free, here.
