About the event:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a particularly debilitating and chronic condition that is often misdiagnosed, unrecognized, or ignored in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This talk will discuss evidence-based recommendations for the assessment and treatment of OCD from a behaviour analytic perspective, and considerations for fostering long-term resilience, courage and flexibility in children and young people with ASD.
