“Is It ADHD, Autism, or Both? A Parent’s Guide to Social and Emotional Health [Video Replay & Podcast #236]

In this hour long webinar on-demand, learn the impact of ADHD and autism on children, with Mark Bertin, M.D.

Episode Description

Among a parent’s most heart-wrenching challenges is watching a child struggle to make friends or get along on the playground — and feeling powerless to help. It’s not always clear what’s going on and how you can best help, particularly when living with a diagnosis such as ADHD and/or autism spectrum disorder. What social concerns go along with ADHD? What challenges are specific to autism?And what should a parent do when the two conditions overlap?

When parents are armed with the facts about signs and symptoms of ADHD and autism — and how each condition affects a child socially, behaviorally, and emotionally — they can work with the pediatrician to nail down an accurate diagnosis and get the most effective evidence-based supports to help that child thrive socially.

In this webinar, parents will learn:

  • The impact of ADHD on children socially, behaviorally, and emotionally
  • How autism affects social and behavioral development
  • How ADHD and autism impact communication skills
  • How to differentiate between symptoms of ADHD and autism
  • The most effective interventions for children struggling socially and emotionally with ADHD, autism, or both
