BYU to Host Fifth Annual Autism Translational Research Workshop

Two days dedicated to discussing the tough topics of autism research

When it comes to autism, there are tough topics that aren’t widely discussed, even though they need to be. Sex education and interactions with law enforcement are just two such topics that will be discussed by experts at the fifth annual Autism Translational Research Workshop on January 25-26, 2018.

BYU Continuing Education will host the event at the BYU Conference Center in Provo in partnership with Brigham Young University’s David O. McKay School of Education and Timpanogos Regional Hospital.

Featured sessions will cover interactions with law enforcement, sex education, aggression and digital addictions.  Other sessions include ADOS reliability, finding females with autism, differential diagnosis, and film discussion about love, romance and dating.

The two-day conference addresses tough topics and differential diagnosis. Participants will learn new ideas and methods while meeting with autism professionals and colleagues.

This workshop is designed for physicians, nurses, psychologists, school psychologists, educators, social workers, BCBAs, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists and others who work or care for children and adults with autism.

Registration for the event is now open; visit autismworkshop.byu.edu to register. A discount for early registration ends January 23. Discounts are available for groups (5+ people) by calling BYU Conferences and Workshops, (801) 422-8925.
