Exploring Mental Health of Autistic Students
Written by Dr. Jonathan Weiss, an Associate Professor and a Clinical Psychologist, this course will allow you to identify and define mental health and mental health problems in the context of autism and become familiar with the contributing factors that lead to the development of mental health difficulties in autistic children and youth.
Coping with Anxiety in Autism
Approximately 40% of people with autism are also diagnosed with at least one anxiety disorder. Anxiety and stress can impact a person with autism in ways that can be difficult to cope with and specific features of autism may lead to an increase in the symptoms of anxiety.
After taking this course, you’ll have confidence to ensure appropriate accommodations are made for the individual with autism experiencing anxiety.
OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorder: Differential Diagnosis, Effective Intervention, and Courage in the Face of Adversity
Anxiety-related issues and OCD are often misdiagnosed, unrecognized, or ignored. A major challenge for practitioners is determining whether observed symptoms are related to the core features of ASD or indicate the presence of OCD.
This talk will discuss practical, evidence-based recommendations for the assessment and treatment of anxiety and OCD in children and adolescents with ASD.
Behavior and Trauma: Autism’s Greatest Puzzle
For children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the impact of trauma is often camouflaged as behaviour and the features of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder masquerade as autism, leading those who provide intervention grappling with incredibly complex situations.
In this course, you will learn the impact of trauma on brain development, strategies to prevent traumatic events in the lives of persons with ASD, and develop trauma-sensitive behaviour intervention plans.
