With literally hundreds of studies published each year reporting new research on autism spectrum disorder, it can be difficult for anyone to stay up-to-date on the latest scientific findings. This educational seminar will inform both parents and professionals with an interest in autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Amaral will highlight findings from his own research, from colleagues at the MIND Institute and from the world autism research community. The presentation will review the “Top 10 Research Findings of 2015” as well as current research taking place at the MIND Institute. Dr. Amaral will also summarize new nationwide initiatives to study large numbers of families living with autism.
4 CE hours (SLP, SLPA, LCSW, Psychologists, MFT, RN) (You must be here for the 4 hours)
