This lecture will address the challenges and differences in diagnosis and treatment of High Functioning Autism Disorder (HFA). Therapists will learn to identify HFA and better recognize how its symptomology could be confused with ADD and other mood disorders. The impact on treatment modalities, interventions, and therapeutic goals will be explored. In addition, the difficulty of interpersonal relationships and challenges for clients who are either diagnosed with HFA or their spouses and families will be discussed. Please note that this is part one of a two part lecture series.
