This 47th annual conference, “Autism in Transition,” will present plenary addresses and workshops on the latest perspectives on how to understand, diagnose and treat autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children, adolescents, and adults. Once considered rare, autism has an estimated prevalence of 1 in 70 individuals. It is characterized by difficulties in communication, responding to social cues, and developing relationships, as well as resistance to change and repetitive behaviours. Leading researchers and practitioners from across North America will describe current research, including important advances in neuroscience, behavioural phenotyping, and epigenetics/genetics. The conference will also examine the importance of early diagnosis, effective interventions and policies in enhancing outcomes for individuals and families impacted by autism. The target audience for this conference includes researchers, clinicians, trainees and policy makers working in the field of autism.
