Dr. Connie Kasari, Professor of Psychological Studies in Education and Psychiatry at UCLA and founding member of the Center for Autism Research and Treatment

Dr. Kasari discussed social needs of children with autism and outreach to underserved populations. She also addressed questions such as: What does the evidence show about the social needs of children with autism? What are the most effective strategies for meeting those social needs, both in educational settings and in home settings? Are there, for example, specific strategies that can be employed during play dates or recess or outside of formal clinic settings?
