Autism, Asperger = Autism Spectrum Disorder: It’s not just another Mental Illness
Level: All Levels
Larry Lipsitz, MEd, Intensive Positive Training, LLC, Baltimore, MD
Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has become one of the fastest growing disability yet providers continue to be confused about the characteristics and how to clinically treat the many symptoms. Professionals with a mental health background treat it as if it was a mental illness. Experts in the field of intellectual disabilities focus on techniques used in that field. Instead, providers should consider that what needs to be developed is a model that focuses on the uniqueness of ASD as a neurological issue which affects the individual’s ability to process and understand the world around them.

“The NADD competency-based clinical certification has provided me with an avenue to verify a dual diagnosis specialty. My ability to provide clinical supports to individuals supported both by medical assistance and private insurances has been expanded by allowing me to gain access to closed insurance networks. These networks had been closed to me prior to receiving this certification, allowing this population to remain largely unserved outside of community mental health centers.”
Alyse Kerr, MS, NCC, LPC, NADD-CC
