About This Webinar:

Children can be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder as early as 18 months, but delays in social and communication skills and other signs can appear earlier in life. This webinar covers the prevalence of autism in the US and common red flags.  The screening and diagnosis process of young children with autism is also discussed.  Strategies for partnering with and supporting families through this process are shared.

Continuing Education (CE) Credit

**Update**

Due to COVID-19, the ability to access face-to-face professional development has become very limited.  Thus the Early Intervention Training Program (EITP) has agreed to extend CE credit for this archived MFLN Early Intervention webinar for ILLINOIS providers through Dec. 31, 2020.  Individuals seeking CE credit to be used towards other state or agency credentials should contact their credentialing/licensing agency for guidance.

Click the button below for CE credit or Certificate of Completion. 
You will be prompted to complete an evaluation after which a link will be provided.
