About this Session
In this session relevant topics related to co-occurring attention deficits within Autism Spectrum Disorder will be discussed. Key concepts will include: the overlap and differences in symptoms between ADHD and ASD, diagnostic dilemmas posed in individuals presenting with concerns in these areas, how dual-diagnosis may influence treatment decisions, and how symptoms change over the lifespan. We expect this fireside chat will be of particular interest to those grappling with the challenge of providing excellent ADHD services in the context of co-occurring developmental conditions.
