Differentiate ASD, sensory integration issues and co-morbid mental health issue. Modify the assessment tools used for anxiety, depression, obsession and suicidal intent to be used with individuals with ASD. Compare and contrast emotional regulation interventions for concrete thinkers.
Evaluate your client’s social/emotional understanding and learn how poor understanding relates to poor intervention effectiveness. Utilize your client’s high interests to reinforce CBT interventions. Identify how ASD symptoms change and present across the lifespan, which is pertinent toward therapy interventions.
Identify clinician interventions available for building self-regulation in children with ASD, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and other sensory processing disorders
