Description

How many kids have you seen over the last few years with rule-outs of both ADHD and autism spectrum disorder? These are two very common referral questions in most practices, yet they’re also challenging to tease apart. Dr. Caroline Buzanko returns to The Testing Psychologist Podcast for a two part discussion of differentiating ADHD & ASD. Here are just a few of the highlights from the conversation:

  • Why it’s important for clinicians to tease these apart and why it can be challenging to do
  • Neuroanatomical similarities and differences between the two
  • The overlap and differentiation of “Criterion A and Criterion B” ASD symptoms from ADHD symptoms
  • What to consider when choosing diagnostic tests to differentiate ASD from ADHD

Interview conducted February 2023.

Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses, case managers.

Format: Asynchronous, distance learning. Non-interactive. Recorded audio with transcript.

This CE course is designated as intermediate.
