The Research Autism Lorna Wing series of conferences and seminars present
The 'autisms': important perspectives on autism: The significance of medical and other co-occuring conditions in autism: Implications for diagnosis, intervention and services
Date: Thursday 19th May 2011 | Venue: Church House Conference Centre, Westminster, London | Chairs: Dr Lorna Wing and Professor Chris Cullen.
Autism or autism spectrum conditions are often described in ways that suggest a unitary condition or disorder. In so doing children and adults on the autism spectrum may not have their specific needs met and the outcome for such individuals may be significantly compromised. This conference aims to take a broad perspective of autism or the autisms by exploring the nature and significance of underlying or co-occurring conditions and the implications of this for assessment, diagnosis, intervention and services.
