ASD: anxiety and mood disorder care with Dr. Jennifer Park
Jennifer Park, PhD is the clinical director of Rogers' San Francisco East Bay location. Dr. Park discusses care for kids and teens with a mental health challenge and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Kids with ASD often also deal with anxiety, mood or OCD and related disorders that co-occur with their ASD diagnosis. Due to the social, emotional and behavioral difficulties that can result from this combination of disorders, providers and parents often feel overwhelmed. It can be difficult to know where to go for help, particularly given how challenging it is to find specialists who understand the unique needs of kids with ASD and co-occurring mental health conditions.
