Autism expert Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh joins Shannon for a special episode of Ask Dr. Doreen. Ask Dr. Doreen is a weekly live segment where viewers can ask questions of one of Autism's leading experts. In this episode Dr. Doreen answers the following questions:

00:18 My 27-year-old brother had Asperger's and psychosis. How can we overlap these diagnoses to get him the best help and treatment?
21:13 With the new DSM-V, is there no longer an Asperger's diagnosis? What about when it is combined with other medical conditions?
25:19 Is treatment for ADHD appropriate for kids with autism?
30:48 The regional center will only give me 10 hours of ABA. I just got insurance, will CARD provide me with more hours?
42:20 Should I apply for Social Security for my 2-year-old with ASD?
45:22 Why has no one done research on autism and puberty?
