Assistant Professor, McGill University in Montreal
Here’s how Elsabbagh describes what she will talk about in this webinar:
Global autism research offers a unique opportunity. The neurobiological substrates of autism are likely to be common across people, and thus the ‘true’ nature of autism is likely to become clear once we study the condition across diverse genetic pools, environments and cultural traditions.
In this webinar, I will present on recent advances in autism research across international settings. Adapting autism research to distinct cultural contexts offers a valuable opportunity to strengthen the scientific evidence for the roots and core features of autism. It also may inspire new directions for diagnosing and managing neurodevelopmental conditions that draw on the strengths of a community.
