SYNOPSIS:
Autism Spectrum Disorders are now being recognized as a major public health concern because of their lifelong persistence. Until recently, there has been little research and attention to the associated psychiatric disorders that may further affect functioning. Participants will be informed about comorbid psychiatric diagnoses and their related symptoms. A better diagnostic understanding will enhance lifelong outcomes and support optimal treatment.
