Autism Spectrum Disorder and Schizophrenia

This article is an interesting study on the co-morbidity of schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).  While there is no definitive correlation between the two disorders, if you child has been diagnosed with ASD, a quick review of the article will provide you with additional information on how schizophrenia behavior is displayed.  This does not mean that your ASD child has schizophrenia or even has a greater chance of schizophrenia, rather it explains how schizophrenia is manifested in an ASD child.

Repairing, restoring, and rebuilding relationships takes time, energy and effort.  If you find yourself needing more help during this process, please call our offices at 407-647-7005 to schedule an appointment.  Or you can send me a quick email at
