November 3 - Three New Studies by Trainees in the Autism Training Program
Three of our trainees in the ASPIRE Autism Training Program announced new studies this week. Their studies range from looking at the complicated process of diagnosing an individual with ASD, to experiences in parent support groups, to sensory experiences and work place experiences for adults with ASD. We hope that you will read more about their studies and consider participating and perhaps even passing this information along to others who might be interested.
