Assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders: Best Practice Guidelines for Measure Selection and Interpretation; December 1st & 2nd, 2022

Registration for this workshop is CLOSED.



As ASD referral populations continue to grow both in size and complexity, clinicians and researchers are faced with difficult decisions about how to design assessment batteries that are valid and feasible. Moreover, appropriate interpretation of test results may be affected by a variety of individual characteristics (e.g., age, sex, IQ, presence of genetic, medical, and/or psychiatric comorbidities).

This conference will include presentations by clinician researchers on use and interpretation of instruments that are widely used in assessment of ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). In addition to presentations on established diagnostic and cognitive tests, we will also present information about newly developed tools for use with ASD and NDD populations. The detailed schedule and list of speakers will be posted soon. This conference will be held online.
