For people with ASDs, depression is common, and has particular features and causes. This webinar will explain and describe depression, the forms it can take, and how it looks and feels for a person on the autism spectrum. The webinar will help to increase self-awareness, including identifying personal triggers, and provide the tools to combat depression.

This “Coffee with Cathy” workshop is offered by the Autism Society of Maine (ASM) and will be facilitated by Cathy Dionne, Director of ASM.

Asperger’s Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals is an international bestseller and seminal in the field.
