Anxiety and Depression Recovery in ASD Outpatient Care
A unique program focused on treating anxiety, mood, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders among youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is available in Skokie.
Kids with ASD often also deal with anxiety, mood or OCD and related disorders that co-occur with their autism. Due to the social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties that can result from this combination of disorders, parents can 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. Rogers’ experts understand and are here to help.
Who do we help?
Kids ages 6 to 18 with:
- Diagnosis of high functioning autism spectrum disorder and OCD or anxiety disorder, depression or other mood disorder
- Demonstrated willingness to receive treatment to improve quality of life while meeting clinical criteria for partial hospitalization care
Patients receive treatment five days a week for 6 to 6½ hours a day. Patients, families, and treatment teams work together to determine length of programs based on individual progress and situations. Rogers’ Anxiety and Mood Disorders program for children and adolescents with ASD is the only program to offer partial hospitalization care in Skokie.
While Rogers’ specialists also help patients with ASD through existing OCD and anxiety programs in other locations, there is a benefit to having a program specifically focused on this group of kids.
