Workshop Title: Comprehensive Developmental Approach to Diagnostic Assessments for Autism Spectrum Disorder

Workshop Description: 

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) impact multiple areas of functioning, demanding a multidisciplinary approach to conceptualization, diagnosis, and intervention. With the prevalence of ASD at 1 in 68 children, clinicians need to be aware of risk factors and how to screen and assess for the disorder. They also need to be aware of the impact of socio-cultural factors on diagnosis. This workshop will help practitioners identify, assess, and diagnose symptoms of ASD from infancy through young adulthood using a comprehensive developmental approach to evaluation, focusing on state of the art measures and standards of best practice in the field. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize and define the key features of ASD.
  2. Identify common diagnostic differentials and comorbid conditions.
  3. Explain the components of a comprehensive developmental evaluation for ASD.

      CE Hours: 3 

      Level: Introductory

      About the Presenters:

      Celine Saulnier, Ph.D., obtained her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Connecticut, after which she completed a postdoctoral fellowship and then joined the faculty at the Yale Child Study Center where she developed expertise in diagnostic evaluations of individuals with ASD from infancy through adulthood. In 2011, she relocated to the Marcus Autism Center & Emory University School of Medicine to help develop and direct a large-scale clinical research program with a focus on early detection of ASD in infancy. In June 2018, she left Marcus to open her own diagnostic clinic and consulting company, Neurodevelopmental Assessment & Consulting Services, and she remains an Adjunct Associate Professor at Emory. Dr. Saulnier has written two books, Essentials of Autism Spectrum Disorders Evaluation and Assessment, and Essentials of Adaptive Behavior Assessment of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, and she is co-author of the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, Third Edition.
