Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) impact multiple areas of functioning,
demanding a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and intervention. With the
prevalence on the rise, clinicians need to learn how to screen for and detect
ASD, and to be aware of the impact of socio-cultural factors on effective
detection. This workshop will help practitioners identify, assess, and diagnose
symptoms of ASD using a comprehensive developmental approach focusing on state
of the art measures and standards of best practice.
CE Hours: 3
Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to:
