Diagnostic Center North: Autism and Mental Health

In 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that approximately 1 in 44 children in the United States is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Given the high prevalence of ASD, it is important for individuals in education to understand more about the disorder, as well as the mental health conditions that often present comorbidly. 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.
