Exciting new addition to program!

“Autism Is A Prenatal Condition: New Genetic and Neural Evidence Points to Prenatal Beginnings and Implications for Early Detection”
presented by Eric Courchesne, M.D.

In the past year, novel basic and clinical research was done indicating that the origins of autism, in a majority of cases, are during pregnancy. Implications for addressing parent questions about autism and childhood vaccines or postnatal exposure to environmental toxins will be discussed. This new knowledge could also lead to novel methods for earlier clinical diagnosis detection.
