Comprehensive interdisciplinary approaches (Boivin, et al., 2021; Donaldson & Stahmer, 2014; Fantino, 2008; LaFrance et al., 2019; Shriver, 2019) to treatment can maximize patient outcomes. Individuals with ASD and related disabilities often present with comorbid conditions. For example, multiple studies indicated the prevalence of co-occurring conditions, including ADHD, epilepsy, OCD, GI problems, sleep, and mood disorders (Mannion & Leader, 2013). In this presentation, we will highlight interdisciplinary treatment approaches providing a bridge between diagnostic assessment, medical support, behavior assessment, and ABA services. Additionally, we will provide case examples using an interdisciplinary framework.
