Autism and Adolescents


Join Dr. Holmes as she interviews Dr. Grcevich and they discuss adolescents on the autism spectrum. Dr. Grcevich discusses why adolescents tend to be missed and what is happening that tends to bring teens for evaluation. As a clinical associate professor for the Department of Psychiatry at NE Ohio Medical University, he discusses medication and how the autistic brain responds differently to psychotropic medications. This is a great segment for clinicians, psychiatrists, general practitioners, and parents for discussing mental health issues that can occur co-morbidly for those on the spectrum.

Dr. Stephen Grcevich (MD, Northeast Ohio Medical University) serves as the founder and President of Key Ministry. He is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who serves as the primary vision caster and spokesperson for Key and plays an important role in Key’s efforts to develop collaborations with church leaders, professionals, and organizations both within and outside the disability ministry movement. He blogs at Church4EveryChild is a regular contributor for both Moody Radio Cleveland and the ERLC and frequently speaks at national and international ministry conferences on mental health and spiritual development. His first book, Mental Health, and the Church was published by Zondervan in 2018.
