With an increasing number of autism diagnoses and a rapidly aging young adult
population with autism, there is a need to increase the sophistication of the
diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of autism and autism spectrum disorders
and share this information with psychiatrists, neurologists, other health care
professionals, and consumers/family members.
The expected outcome, as a result of this activity, would be a general update and
enhancement of knowledge related to the accurate recognition, diagnosis, and
treatment of autism and Asperger’s Disorder. With this knowledge, physicians,
health care professionals, and teachers can better serve the autistic population
and ultimately provide optimal services to their patients with autism and
Asperger’s Disorder. For families that attend, this conference will inform them of
the current trends in diagnosis, research, and treatment and provide
options/resources they might otherwise not have had access to.
Our conference is a one-day event held at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. It
includes a series of lectures and workshops given by accomplished professionals
in the field of autism. The purpose of the conference is to advance knowledge of
the practicing psychiatrist, neurologist, healthcare professional, and
consumers/family members as to the accurate recognition, diagnosis, and
treatment of autism and Asperger’s Disorder.
