Preliminary program for IMFAR

20 Apr

IMFAR, the International Meeting For Autism Research will be held next month (May 12-14). The full scientific program is not up yet (with all the details about who is talking and when), but the preliminary program is online. You can see what sessions are focusing on and see who the keynote speakers are.

Here are some sessions which caught my eye:

Characterizing Cognition in Nonverbal Individuals with Autism: Innocation Assessment and Treatment (an invited symposium–i.e. the conference felt this was an important topic and specifically invited speakers to present their research)

Sex Differences and Females with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Interventions: Behavioral CAM and Psychopharmacology Treatments

In addition, a number of sessions have full or partial focus on adults:

Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Challenges for Epidemiological and Outcome Research (another invited symposium)

Epidemiology: ASD Prevalence, Trends, and Adults with ASD

a poster session on Adults with Autism

Structural and Functional Brain Imaging in Older Children, Adolescents and Adults with ASD

If you missed it, let me draw your attention: there is a session that includes CAM–Complementary and Alternative Medicine
