Understanding Autism: Current Research Developments Jan 17, 2013 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Event Summary

The tragedy of Sandy Hook Elementary School reminds us how little we understand about mental illnesses and about neuro-developmental disorders such as those along the Autism Spectrum (such as Asperger Syndrome).  This Lunch and Learn will feature a leading researcher in the field of Autism, Damon Page, Ph.D.  Dr. Page will describe his current research at the Scripps Research Institute regarding the Autism spectrum.

Following the lecture from Dr. Page we are offering a panel discussion, which will give people a chance to ask questions and learn about resources in our community. Our panelists will be:

Damon Page, Ph.D. Assistant Professor and Researcher at Scripps Research Institute
Richard Busto, Parent and President of The Autism Project of Palm Beach County (APPBC)
Jack Scott, Associate Professor at FAU and Executive Director of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders.
