Overview

This two-day workshop will explore neurobiological aspects of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Practitioners often operate in silos, without team-based care for individuals with ASD.  Stakeholders do not always report non-core symptoms.  This may lead to incomplete diagnosis and suboptimal intervention.  This activity aims to increase participants awareness of non-core symptoms, common co-morbidities and services available to augment the diagnositc and treatment processes.

Each domain covered in the workshop will include real-world examples of impact (stakeholder perspectives), to highlight their relevance to health outcomes and activities of daily living.  Didactic and socratic learning activities will be used to each core concepts related to the neurobiology of ASD and assess workshop participants' prior and new knowledge.  Team-based learning activities will include interdisciplinary problem-based opportunities for professional workshop attendees to practice working in collaborative, comprehensive care teams.
