The goals of this program are to improve management of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), and screening for and management of depression in adolescents. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Equip families of children diagnosed with ASD with tools to assist them in coping with the first 100 days after diagnosis.
2. Support caregivers and siblings of patients diagnosed with ASD and make appropriate referrals.
3. Select appropriate screening tools for depressive symptoms in adolescent patients, and develop protocols for following patients who screen positive.
4. Recognize common and more subtle symptoms of depression in adolescents.
5. Prescribe pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments shown to be effective for depression in adolescents.
The original programs were presented by Marilyn C. Augustyn, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Boston University School of Medicine, and Director, Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Boston Medical Center, Boston, MA.
