Abstract:
This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Autism Spectrum Disorders. Research evidence documents early behaviors of autism spectrum disorders in the first 18 months of life, earlier than some professionals feel comfortable making a diagnosis. Three experts active in early identification will discuss early risk markers and caregivers’ reactions to professionals’ early concerns. Video examples of at-risk behaviors will be utilized.
