The study of anxiety and mood disorders is a relatively new area in the field of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). This chapter highlights a number of issues and questions that research is beginning to address: How common are anxiety and affective disorders in the ASD population? How do we assess and treat psychiatric comorbidity in this group? What are the causes and correlates of anxiety and mood disorders for individuals with ASD? What should clinicians and researchers do next to further our understanding of these issues? What are the clinical implications of comorbidity for this population?
