The workshop will present a review from various developmental perspectives, including medicine, mental health, occupational therapy and speech and language support, the various disciplines that need to come together to help support the systemic concerns that are emblematic to autism spectrum disorder. By attending this workshop, the participant will have a greater understanding both of the specific challenges that can plague the child with ASD and how the various disciplines mentioned work individually and as a team to support the child and create both a stronger neurophysiological system with the potential for improved communication and social reciprocity.
