  • How do you know if your child has autism? Hopefully this video will shed some light on that discussion. Also, please read the disclaimer at the end of the video for more context. I did make a little mistake in the order of the wording, and meant to say when kids are old enough to tell how they are developing, yet young enough for early intervention and so on. So just switch the order of old and young and it will make more sense. For answers to questions about this video, go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8qjZ5x4fLY
  • (Visit: http://www.uctv.tv) Despite exciting advances in our awareness and understanding of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there has been relatively little progress in prevention of this form of neurodevelopmental disorder, or in the development of evidence-based practices to improve outcomes for people with ASD and their families. In addition, most of what is known about the epidemiology, genetics, clinical manifestation and course, treatment, and nearly every other aspect of autism is based on research in high income countries, where fewer than 10% of births occur and less than 20% of the population lives globally. Maureen Durkin, director of the Graduate Program in Population Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, reviews some of the recent developments in the epidemiology of ASD and describe opportunities to expand the horizons of ASD epidemiolog.

  • Early interventions for autism are increasingly focused on early core developmental abilities. These include a focus on shared attention and affect, joint attention and social motivation to interact with others. Strong theoretical and empirical evidence documents how early learning is facilitated by interactions with others. In this presentation, Dr. Kasari will address targeted interventions for these important core developmental abilities, and how early interventions generate change in the short term and create a platform for later developmental growth. She will also illustrate these changes through our intervention research with toddlers, preschoolers, and school aged children with a particular focus on underserved, under-resourced children with ASD and their families.
