    Assessing Autism in First 3 Years of Life

    with Sally Ozonoff, PhD

    Wednesday May 19

    5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Online Webinar: Live and Interactive

    Dr. Sally Ozonoff is the Endowed Professor and Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Psychiatry and the MIND Institute—a national center for the study and treatment of ASD—at the University of California, Davis. Dr. Ozonoff is widely known for her research and teaching in the areas of early diagnosis and assessment of ASD.  She has authored over 150 papers on the topic of Autism and is the co-editor of Assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Second Edition (for mental health professionals), and co-author of A Parent's Guide to High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, Second Edition. Her work has been showcased on 60 minutes. 

    Dr. Ozonoff will be joining us to discuss signs and symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in children ages 3 and younger. She will delineate differences between young children who meet the criteria for ASD and those who do not, the differential diagnostic process, and potential comorbid disorders. She will also include best practices in remote assessment that can be used during the pandemic under PPE protocols.

    Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, the participants will be able to:

    1. Name three signs of ASD in the first year of life
    2. Identify the most appropriate screening and diagnostic instruments in assessing children 3 and under
    3. Distinguish ASD from non-ASD developmental delays.
