Depression in young people with ASD
My 18 year old grandson is a non verbal, yet quite high functioning, young man with ASD. Over the past couple of years he has had spells of totally withdrawing and taking to his bed for long periods. These seem to be becoming more frequent recently and we are concerned for his mental health. Where can we locate the appropriate professional help? Because he is non verbal is it very difficult to establish what is troubling him.
