The Autism SIG provides a forum for members who take care of children with autism to engage with one another through discussions on an active listserv and in person at the Annual Meeting. There are opportunities for members to learn about current research, policy, treatment and public health in autism from experts in the field at the Annual Meeting.

Recent Activity:

At SDBP in Nashville last year, over 100 people attended the Autism SIG and provided positive feedback about the content of our program.
