The differential diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children who have a hearing loss is challenging, due in part to the lack of valid standardized assessments for this population. This webinar explores communication characteristics of children with both ASD and hearing loss and those who are deaf/hard of hearing but do not have ASD, focusing on distinguishing attributes. Awareness of the features that are unique to ASD in the deaf/hard of hearing population will enable clinicians to more accurately identify ASD in these children and lead to earlier access to appropriate and much-needed intervention. The webinar also highlights the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration when working with children with co-occurring hearing loss and ASD.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • List the obstacles to accurate diagnosis in this population
  • List the benefits of early identification of ASD in children who are deaf/hard of hearing
  • Identify the critical elements of an interdisciplinary assessment
