A Life Simulation Setting: Delivering Comprehensive Care to Neurodivergent Young People

Older teens and young adults who are neurodivergent, or have autism (Asperger’s/ADHD), are struggling to launch and can require a more intensive treatment. Frequently, these individuals experience loss of skill development that can result in trauma, anxiety, and depression. With these young people on the cusp of adulthood, what is necessary to help this population be successful and as independent as possible? Join Rick Silver, MD, ScM ’83, as he discusses how he delivers comprehensive care through “a life simulation setting”, which includes executive function skill building, medication, and family involvement resulting in the skills needed for independence.
