Program Description

With the increasing rate of autism diagnoses and a rapidly aging young adult population with autism, there is a need to increase the sophistication of the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of autism and autism spectrum disorders and share this information with psychiatrists, neurologists, other health care professionals, and consumers/family members. This is the main purpose of the Advances in Autism Conference.

The goal of the Conference is a general update and enhancement of knowledge related to the accurate recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders. With this knowledge, physicians, health care professionals, and teachers can better serve people with autism and provide optimal services to their patients with autism spectrum disorders. For families who attend, this conference will inform them of the current trends in diagnosis, research, and treatment and provide information on options/resources they might otherwise not have had access to.

Our conference is an annual one-day event held at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. It includes a series of lectures and workshops given by accomplished professionals in the field of autism. The purpose of the conference is to advance knowledge of the practicing psychiatrist, neurologist, psychologist, geneticist, other health care professional, educator, family member and social worker as to the accurate recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders.
