In our changing digital world, social media offers both connectivity and risks for youth and their mental health. While social media can offer opportunities to connect with others and act as a medium for self-expression; significant concerns with cyberbullying, exposure to harmful content, and an increase in mental health issues have emerged. Through thoughtful planning and open dialogue, parents and educators can mitigate such risks and offer practical tips to embrace responsible social media use. As society grapples with digital challenges, collaboration between home and school pave the way for responsible social media use and mental well-being.

The prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder is currently 1 in 36 school-age children in the United States. Yet, the breadth of the spectrum is so broad and heterogeneous that it becomes perplexing as to how some individuals who are profoundly affected can carry the same diagnostic label as those with more subtle symptom expression. This workshop will help clinicians better understand the variability across the autism spectrum based symptom expression, levels of cognition and language, sex differences, emotional/behavioral regulation, and racial/ethnic differences. How to identify and differentiate the common co-occurring conditions will also be discussed.
