Anxiety and Depression Recovery in Autism Spectrum Disorder Care at Rogers

Kids with autism spectrum disorder often also deal with anxiety, mood or obsessive-compulsive disorder and related disorders that co-occur with their autism. That’s why Rogers developed a unique program focused on treating youth on the autism spectrum who are also struggling with these co-occurring disorders. Learn more


From March of 2017 until August of 2018 children and adolescents admitted to our partial hospitalization care, completed measures at both admission and discharge.  Of these patients, 69.2% were male and the mean age was 14.46 years (SD=2.65).  The average number of treatment days in partial hospitalization care is 25.9 days.

PROMIS Depression - Pediatric (PROMISD) Short Form

The PROMISD measures the overall depression symptoms in children and adolescents.
 
At time of admission to our partial hospitalization care, individuals report moderate depression by the PROMISD (m=59. SD=11.6): at time of discharge individuals report mild levels of depression (m=52.8. SD=11.7).  Utilizing paired sample t-tests, we find that these differences are statistically significant at the p<.001.
 
T-Scores Range from 35.2 – 82.4.  Higher scores indicate greater severity of depression.
 
Severity Range:
 
  • Less than 50 = None to slight
  • 50.0-54.9 = Mild
  • 55.0-64.9 = Moderate
  • 65 and over = Severe

Rogers Behavioral Health has more than 20 years of commitment and investment in outcomes studies, with nearly 10,000 of our patients participating. Patients who agree to participate are asked at admission and discharge to complete a series of questionnaires; follow-up calls on progress are made periodically after discharge.

Study findings are used by our treatment teams to examine the effectiveness of our clinical program and to make improvements. The findings are also presented at national and international conferences and published in peer-reviewed medical literature.

Overall, our outcome data consistently have shown that our residential and partial hospitalization treatment centers offer effective treatment, and newer studies under way are demonstrating similar consistency in outcomes for our partial hospital level of outpatient care. In selected programs where we have reached out one year after they leave the program, past patients report that they’ve been able to maintain the gains they made during treatment. With the implementation of our Cerner electronic health record, we are gaining additional understanding of our clinical effectiveness across service lines, levels of care and throughout our system, including our regional network of outpatient centers. With this knowledge, we are gaining insights that contribute to real-time adjustments in care and help us confirm the impact of evidence-based care upon outcomes.
