This three-day workshop blends cutting-edge neurobiology with treatment strategies supporting clinicians, pediatricians, educators and caregivers who serve the Autism Spectrum Disordered population.

Through a series of lectures, participants will leave with multidimensional understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through deepened insights into epigenetics, neural connectivity, immunology, relationship-based intervention and sensory-motor treatment programs.
