Dual diagnosis of autism and osteogenesis imperfecta: Case examples to illustrate the implications of dual diagnosis for enhanced outcomes for child and family

Jones Rebecca , Seasman Alison , Marr Caroline , Bishop Nicholas , Arundel Paul , Balasubramanian Meena , Team Metabolic Bone

Background: A minority of children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) seen within the Sheffield National Severe, Complex and Atypical Service (SCAOI) were also identified as showing symptoms consistent with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (Balasubramanian et al. 2018). Diagnosis of ASD in conjunction with OI may be delayed due to presenting problems being inappropriately attributed to OI resulting in specialised ASD input not being received by children.<p class="...
