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 will cover the prevalence of autism in the US and common red flags. The screening and diagnosis process of young children with autism will also be discussed. Strategies for partnering with and supporting families through this process will be shared.
Dr. Hedda Meadan is an Associate Professor at the Department of Special Education at the University of Illinois, a Goldstick Family Scholar, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Dr. Meadan’s areas of interest include social-communication skills and challenging behavior of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and intervention methods to enhance these spheres of functioning.
