This training will provide education related to mental health disorders that frequently affect individuals diagnosed with ASD, as well as corresponding treatment interventions.Participant Will:
- Learn about ASD and the mental health disorders that often present comorbidly.
- Learn strategies to assess for mental health disorders and ASD.
- Learn treatment interventions to utilize when working with students who have both ASD and a mental health disorder. A Certificate of Completion is available to participants. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities. The Diagnostic Center is also a California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board-approved continuing professional development provider.
