2023 Conference on Evidence Based Interventions Across the Lifespan for Individuals Diagnosed with ASD; November 30th & December 1st (ONLINE) (in progress)


Research on evidence-based practices for people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is ever-expanding. Such work includes the original development of interventions designed to improve long-term functional outcomes and quality of life among people diagnosed with ASD, and the adaptation and implementation of established interventions to ameliorate symptoms of conditions that commonly co-occur with ASD (e.g., anxiety, depression, ADHD).

This two-day virtual conference brings together internationally renowned experts whose research and clinical practice focuses on the development and delivery of evidence-based interventions to individuals diagnosed with ASD. Attendees will learn about the research supporting a wide breadth of interventions that may be helpful for children, adolescents, or adults on the autism spectrum with varying cognitive and language abilities. 

This conference will be held online.
