Identifying Autism Spectrum Disorder (Level 1) in Adults

Marcia Eckerd, PhD

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is present from childhood.  Prevalence rates range from 1% to 1.5%.  Males are more likely to be diagnosed with ASD than females.  A review of childhood and current behavior and social functioning is critical to accurate diagnosis.  Listening to the description of problems from the perspective of the patient, building the treatment alliance, and processing the details of problematic social interactions are essential to successful outcomes.  Coaching and role-playing can also be useful techniques.
