Autism Spectrum Disorders: From Early Identification to Life Success
9:45 - 11:30 | Hall F
Individuals with ASD have limitless potential, which can be more easily realized when identification and diagnosis occur at an early age. This presentation highlights new information on the neurology and characteristics of ASD in a user-friendly format and introduces a groundbreaking method of identifying children with ASD as young as six months of age. In addition, emphasis is placed on interventions that match the neurology and characteristics of ASD that lead to positive life outcomes.

Dr. Klin is an internationally recognized psychologist and researcher. His primary research activities focus on the social mind and brain, and aspects of autism from infancy through adulthood. In his most noted work, Klin used eye-tracking technology to visualize and measure social engagement, allowing him to monitor infants who potentially have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). His research goal is to identify individuals with ASD as early as possible so that potential therapies can have their maximal effect.
