FREE CE Session – Demystifying Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Clinical Setting

Autism Spectrum Disorder consists of a wide range of symptoms and can be very challenging for both client and caregiver. Effective treatment consists of gaining an understanding related to hypothesized causes, becoming familiar with both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment approaches, and learning how to support the individual that has been diagnosed with the disorder. In addition, caregivers must recognize the need for self-care, reflection, and health. To fully support and be an effective member of the treatment team, the caregiver must be able to utilize and employ coping strategies to help deal with stress, anxiety, and perceived failure.
