Friday, October 3 8 p.m. It is well known that early intervention is critical for young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). But how does one know a child might have an ASD? The presentation will review the current research on screening and early identification of young children with an ASD, the barriers associated with early identification, and some of the novel identification methods underway.
