Did you know 37% of Autistics also have OCD? April Kilduff, MA, LCPC, LPCC, LMHC is a Therapist & Clinical Training Specialist who has worked with this intersection for the last 14 years. Through her experience as a therapist, clinical trainer, and Autistic person herself, she has found important distinctions to understand, as well as how to successfully adapt Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) so it works for neurodivergent minds. Most of us will work with Autistic clients at some point in our careers. In order to provide helpful intervention, it is important to learn how Autism presents in a client, as well as some important clinical considerations that arise when Autism and OCD occur together. This is an Autistic voice-led training, arguably the best way to learn about working with Autism, which is just as misunderstood, nuanced & idiosyncratic as OCD. Real case examples will be incorporated to help give perspective and enrich the overall learning experience so participants can more easily apply interventions. Our expert presenter for this training program is autistic herself & very passionate about this particular area of clinical treatment. She enjoys sharing her clinical knowledge and passion for helping neurodiverse clients at all life stages!
