Interdisciplinary Conversations: Autism Spectrum Disorders
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | 12:10 p.m.–1:10 p.m. | Kessel C/D (PLV), 18th Floor Boardroom (NYC)
Autism is multifaceted, and requires interdisciplinary perspectives to better understand its causes and consequences and to intervene to improve the lives of individuals living with autism and related disorders. Does your research involve trying to better understand the underlying etiology of autism and its symptoms? Does your work involve interventions or service provisions for those with autism? Are you interested in improving educational outcomes and trajectories for individuals with autism? If so, please join us for an interdisciplinary conversation to learn more about your colleagues’ research, interest, and expertise in this area. It will be a chance to forge interdisciplinary connections and collaborations and to hear about current funding opportunities on this topic.
