Comorbidity & Autism - When ASD isn't the Only Diagnosis of Concern
OUCARES Free Webinar.  Presented by Hana Jurgens, MA, BCBA, LBA, Regional Clinical Training Coordinator, Positive Behavior Supports Corp.
As people with ASD grow and develop, they often struggle with different challenges such as Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder and more.  When paired with social and self-advocacy difficulties, these new diagnoses can result in new and concerning behaviors including suicidal ideations, self-harming behaviors, and sometimes suicidal attemps.  In this discussion we are going to discuss:  Ways caregivers can better prepare & support comorbid diagnoses with an ASD diagnosis.  Strategies to help people with ASD advocate for themselves.  How to determine courses of action to maintain safety for individuals with ASD & their families.  This event is designed for individuals with ASD, parents and caregivers, professionals, and anyone interested in learning how to support and keep people with ASD safe.
