What Happened to Asperger's Syndrome: A New Look At An Old Diagnostic Category

The benefits of this cutting-edge seminar are different because most presentations cover just autism, Asperger's syndrome or nonverbal learning disorders. This on-demand webinar will compare symptoms, discuss the perils of misdiagnosis and attempt to understand why the vast majority of these children and teens are initially misdiagnosed, and what improper treatment can cause. Co-morbidity is the rule, not the exception. This program will discuss educational needs and why a 504 or IEP is often crucial for a child's success. This on-demand webinar will also address the different qualifications for services through regional centers in California and their sister organizations throughout the country.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review the difference between Asperger's and HFA.
  • You will be able to discuss symptoms of girls vs. boys.
  • You will be able to recognize nonverbal learning disorder.
