Did you know recent changes to the DSM-5 now state that ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder can co-occur?
Are you wondering how ADHD and Autism can seem to share some characteristics and yet be very different disorders?
Ericka L. Wodka, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, of Kennedy Krieger Institute, one the nation’s leading centers for the treatment of childhood brain-based disorders, will present on the relationship between ADHD and Autism.
Many families have been told their children are affected by both ADHD and Autism but until recently, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), which defines mental health and brain-based conditions, stated they were exclusive conditions. Now those families, and others, are working out what it means for diagnosis and treatment for these conditions to be acknowledged as possibly co-occurring. Dr. Wodka will discuss these changes and answer parents’ questions during this Ask the Expert webinar.
