Session 7: Contemporary Approaches in Diagnosis, Treatment, and Transitions for Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Across the Lifespan

Egg Harbor, WI US
July 29, 2024 to July 30, 2024
During this 8-hour course we will use active case-based discussion to take a closer look at the care and treatment of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD). Day one will focus on diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and intellectual developmental disorder including using DSM-5-TR criteria, controversies surrounding the diagnosis, current recommendations for genetic testing, and how genetic testing results can be used in clinical practice. The first day will conclude with discussion of the difficult diagnosis of co-occurring psychiatric disorders. Day two will continue with the topic of co-occurring psychiatric disorders and then cover therapeutic and pharmacologic treatments both specific to and adapted for those with NDD. Finally, we will discuss some key factors for transitions both from adolescents to adulthood and beyond that can promote health and well-being for the individual and the family.
