Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects approximately 2% of American school-age youth, and its core features – social and communicative deficits, and repetitive and/or stereotyped behaviors – are associated with multidimensional impairment persisting into adulthood. In the roughly 1/3 of youth with ASD who have comorbid obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a synergistic effect is often observed on psychosocial impairment beyond that predicted by a diagnosis of ASD alone. Beyond exacerbation of impairment, there are numerous issues unique to this population which complicate effective assessment and treatment. This panel will present evidence-based modifications to assessment and treatment of individuals with OCD and comorbid ASD.
