INSAR Institute 2019
Understanding Heterogeneity in Autism Research and Clinical Practice: A Multidisciplinary Approach 

View Sessions 

This 6-week webinar series takes place on Thursdays from June 13th to July 25th. The series focused on broadening our understanding of co-occurring psychiatric, medical, and developmental conditions of autism through empirical research. Recent INSAR SIGs (Special Interest Groups) revealed increasing interest in the heterogeneity of autism. Therefore, each session addressed heterogeneity through one of the diverse topics including psychiatric, biomedical, developmental, and gender identity issues in autism, followed by Q&A.

INSAR Institute webinars are designed for students, post-doctoral fellows, early-career investigators, families, service providers, and people with autism and their families. The live sessions of the 2019 Institute were free to attend; pre-registration was required. Each session was recorded and available to current INSAR Members as a benefit of society membership. One session recording in the series is open to all viewers.

Registration is free and available worldwide to those interested in autism research. Clinicians, established researchers and stakeholders who want to get a snapshot of the current state of science in topics outside their area of expertise may also find these sessions of value.
