Navigating the Journey: Overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis

About this session:

Your child recently received a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and you have questions:

  • What is Autism and how is it diagnosed?
  • What does it mean to be “on the spectrum”?
  • What are co-occurring diagnoses?
  • What causes Autism?
  • How do I know if my child is improving?
  • When and why would medications be prescribed?

This session seeks to clarify Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and co-occurring diagnoses. The core symptoms of ASD, treatment options and medications will also be explored. We hope you leave this session with answers to some common questions and additional insight about ASD.
