Event description

Description

Twenty-five percent of outpatient pediatric visits are for developmental or behavioral concerns. For example, 1 in 68 children have an autism spectrum disorder, and up to 17 percent of children have a developmental disability or behavior concern. Although developmental disabilities are common, the needs of these children can be complex.

This conference will use an interprofessional approach to identifying and managing global developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and behavior problems. We will also discuss the myriad of causes for intellectual and developmental disabilities, including congenital Zika. Patient- and family-centered care and web-based resources will be emphasized.

CME/CNE credits are available for physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and social workers.

The event will be held on the second floor of Children's Hospital in the Wadlington Conference Room. Free parking is available in the South Garage, at the corner of Children's Way and 24th Avenue South.
