Silverstone Event Center – Meridian, Idaho
Autism is becoming one of the most common developmental disabilities in the world and some researchers suggest the numbers may be one in 100 children. Children with this disability (and their families) have a number of significant issues including behavior, communication, nutrition, isolation and repetitive behaviors, and family stressors. Families become responsible for sorting out the wide range of interventions now available to this population. The goal of this one-day seminar is to discuss the core issues in autism including diagnosis, screening, working with families, biomedical treatments, genetics, neuropsychology, challenging behaviors, and developing communication. The presenters, Drs. Hamilton Warren-Sutton, Trevor Hall, and Robert Buckendorf together bring decades of experience in working with this unique and challenging population.
Co-Presented by Northwest Neurobehavioral Health, LLC, (NNH), and Robert Buckendorf, PhD.
