INSAR Institute 2020:

Developmental Stages of Autism through a Research Lens 

This 6-week webinar series took place on Thursdays from June 11th to July 16th, 2020.This series focuses on understanding barriers and facilitators that influence autistic individuals’ transition through different life stages, integrating research and clinical practice. Broadening our understanding of autism across the lifespan also has implications for policy making to ensure that autistic individuals reach their full potential in an increasingly neurodiverse society. The initiative to consider autism across the lifespan is reflected by recent INSAR Special Interest Groups (SIGs). In 2018/2019, popular SIGs examined advancing and adapting interventions to aid transition to college for autistic students, understanding gender and sexuality in adulthood, as well as a focus on increasing neurodiversity by engaging directly with autistic individuals in research and clinical practice.

INSAR Institute webinars are designed for students, post-doctoral fellows, early-career investigators, families, service providers, and autistic people and their families. The live sessions of the 2020 Institute are free to attend; pre-registration is required. All session recordings from the INSAR Institute 2020 will be accessible to everyone for replay.

*You must be logged into your INSAR profile to view the recordings. (No profile? Create a free one HERE.)

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.
