Event description
Dr. Shattuck discusses the importance of data in policies that help or hinder quality of life for people on the autism spectrum.

About this Event

There is an urgent need for understanding how life unfolds across the lifespan for people on the autism spectrum. Medical and clinical interventions are vital, but we must also learn about the experiences that help or hinder quality of life for people on the autism spectrum, their families, and our communities. In his lecture, Dr. Paul Shattuck will share his response to this need through the development, strategies, and impact of the National Austism Data Center and the Research Program in Life Course Outcomes.

Dr. Shattuck leads the Life Course Outcomes Research Program, the National Autism Data Center and the Transition Pathways Initiative at Drexel University’s Autism Institute in Philadelphia. Previously he was an Associate Professor at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. Shattuck has graduate degrees and postdoctoral training in sociology, social work, social welfare and public health. With over 7,300 citations, his work has directly informed national policy and shaped autism research funding priorities at NIH, HRSA and major foundations. Most of his current work informs the improvement of services and related outcomes among youth on the autism spectrum as they leave high school and transition to young adulthood. He is passionate about uniting knowledge production and community engagement in the pursuit of community solutions that promote social justice, inclusion, health and wellbeing.

We look forward to seeing you:
