Description: Autism is heterogeneous from a perspective of etiology, neurobiology and clinical presentation, requiring multifaceted individualized. Behavioral features may be manifestations of other medical conditions as well as of pain and discomfort, which need to be identified for most appropriate intervention and treatment. Basic research is showing that genetic and metabolic contributors may involve many organ systems as well as the brain. This program will interrelate basic research with clinical decision-making processes. This program is offered in partnership with the Child Neurology Society and the AAN Child Neurology Section.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with the differential diagnoses and work-up, including the utilization of many specialists to get a full picture of the medical comorbidities for each individual, since they can have major impacts of developmental progress and quality of life.
