Children with Autism and a Co-occurring Psychiatric Disorder:

A Guide for Parents & Educators

Presented by

L. Jarrett Barnhill MD

This presentation is designed to provide parents and professionals an overview of psychiatric disorders in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. There are many challenges to making psychiatric diagnoses. These include the complex nature of autism; association with other neurological, genetic and neurodevelopmental disorders such as Intellectual disability, and the problems dealing with the overlap between anxiety, mood changes, ADHD, tic disorders, psychotic disorders like schizophrenia, and autism. We will explore these challenges and discuss ways to help resolve them.

Dr. Barnhill is a Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry and the Director of the Developmental Neuropharmacology Clinic University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill School of Medicine. He serves on the board of directors for the National Association of Dual Diagnosis and is currently serving as vice president of that organization. He played a major role in the development of the Diagnostic Manual for Intellectual Disability (DMID), serving on the International Advisory Board and section coordinator for the section on Childhood and Adolescence. He currently serves on the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Committee of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Dr. Barnhill's clinical interests include autism, mental disorders in individuals with mental retardation and other developmental disorders, and the neuropsychiatry of traumatic brain injury, metabolic, mood and seizure disorders, Tourette's and Obsessive-Compulsive disorders.
