Autism Case Training: Developing Skills to Recognize and Address Autism Spectrum Disorders

Sunday, November 6, 2011 12:30PM - 03:00PM

Location: Fairfax/ Prince William Room

Session Description

With the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) now estimated at 1:110 pediatricians are increasingly expected to screen children for ASDs, play a role in diagnosis, and manage educational, behavioral, and developmental needs. The CDC and MCHB-DBP fellowship programs partnered to develop a flexible, modular curriculum that addresses these multiple facets. The curriculum includes seven case-based modules designed for group discussion: early signs, screening, effective communication of screening results, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment, and anticipatory guidance.

This interactive workshop will train attendees to implement the curriculum in pediatric residency programs or adapt for other audiences and settings. Time will be included for discussion and Q&A to address specific concerns.

Participation is limited to 40 attendees.  This workshop is sponsored and registration is waived.
