Time: Wednesday, June 19, 2013, from 2:00pm to 3:00 PM EST
Presenter: Lauren Elder, PhD
Lauren Elder, PhD, is the Assistant Director of Dissemination Science at Autism Speaks. She will be speaking on Autism Speaks’ Early Access to Care initiative, which seeks to reduce the average age of diagnosis and increase access to high-quality early intervention for all children on the autism spectrum. Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders can be diagnosed as early as two years of age, however the average age of diagnosis for autism in the United States remains stubbornly close to 5 years old and is even higher in some ethnic minority communities. Many families lack access to effective early intervention therapies regardless of early diagnosis. Join us to learn more about what Autism Speaks is doing improve access to care and ways your efforts combined with those of others in your community can help make a difference.
