Why Choose Rogers
Research indicates that those who have ASD also have a significantly increased risk in developing a mental health disorder, which is referred to as a comorbid or co-occurring disorder. Anxiety and mood disorders are common co-occurring disorders that those with ASD generally develop. Co-occurring conditions often exacerbate core ASD symptoms. For instance, anxiety or depression symptoms can aggravate social deficits, communicative difficulties, repetitive behaviors, or cognitive and behavioral perseverations.
Examples of anxiety and mood disorders include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
