On Feb. 26th, 2017 Dr. Vincent Carbone spent the morning visiting Child Development Center. He spoke extensively to the staff and explored the program and therapy plans in detail.
160 attendees, 7 local presenters, and Dr. Carbone! Our 3rd Annual Autism Outreach and Training Symposium was a resounding success!
Media Coverage of the Symposium:
Qatar Foundation’s World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) hosted a forum in November 2016 on Autism. This must-read report provides a comprehensive overview of global trends in ASD, and provides three overarching policy recommendations to improve the support for children with ASD, their families, and their communities. It also highlights the critical need for collaboration between health, education, and social sectors as well as the pressing need for evidence-based therapies. The Chair of this forum, Dr. Kerim Munir; and the Deputy Chair, Dr. Muhammad Waqar Azeem; visited CDC on April 18, 2016 along with co-authors Tara Lavelle and David Helm. We are honored to have contributed to this amazing effort.
