The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder has increased significantly over the past several years, to the point that 1 in 50 kids will receive an autism diagnosis. But what about adults?
As identification of autism in children rises, more and more parents and other adults are also seeking diagnosis and treatment. Social media apps like TikTok are bringing more awareness of autism and have led to increased rates of self-identification among adults as well. What’s a clinician to do?
Most mental health clinicians did not receive significant graduate education on identifying and treating autism in kids, much less in adults. This 2-hour continuing education web conference presented by Dr. Jeremy Sharp will focus on both aspects of adult autism - identifying and treating - so participants can feel more confident and be more effective in their clinical work with these individuals.
Dr. Sharp will cover all aspects of the autism assessment process (both formal neuropsych testing and informal clinical assessment during session) along with research-supported treatment methods for autism. He will also dive into the world of neurodiversity and outline its impact on clinical practice.
