Differentiating Autism Spectrum Disorders From Other Conditions

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is complex and can be difficult to identify. With as many as 1 in 68 individuals being identified, it’s important to note that not all individuals appearing as ASD are properly diagnosed.

In this 5-part video series, Sandra Salazar, LPC, a Texas Certified School Counselor and Special Education teacher who specializes in counseling children, adolescents, and adults living with autism spectrum and mood disorders, presents information for differentiating autism spectrum disorder.

The learning objectives for this 5-part video series include how to:

  • Identify soft signs, as well as 4 core traits of ASD.
  • Distinguish differences and similarities between ASD and other conditions.
  • Identify appropriate assessments and testing instruments for ruling out or confirming ASD.
