Science & Sandwiches at UCLA Featuring Dr. Connie Kasari

 

In this unique event, Dr. Connie Kasari, Professor of Psychological Studies in Education and Psychiatry at UCLA and founding member of the Center for Autism Research and Treatment, will discuss social needs of children with autism and outreach to underserved populations. 

She will address 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? 

Why is there such a difference in autism diagnosis rates in different populations? What services are lacking in underserved populations? How can better-served communities contribute to improving the services in underserved communities? Are there service models that are more effective in different communities?
