Features of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) äóñ impaired social and communication skills, and unusual, repetitive or stereotyped interests, movements, or behaviors äóñ are associated with significant functional impairment. More than 1/3 of youth with ASD carry comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which increases impairment beyond that of a diagnosis of ASD alone. Although the research base is growing, the area of OCD and ASD remains subject to a number of misconceptions, which can affect proper diagnosis and treatment. This panel will be a thought-provoking and entertaining experience.
