Asperger Syndrome: Anxiety & Depression in Adolescents
Dr Eric Marx and Ms Christine Burnett from the psychology Department at the Australian Catholic University are conducting a study on anxiety and depression in adolescents with Asperger Syndrome. Previous studies suggest that these combined factors are prevalent in the Asperger population. Ms Burnett is a mother of five children, including an adolescent with Asperger Syndrome. We are seeking adolescents aged 12-17 with an existing diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome.
