Familial Aspects of Autism

The International Society for Autism Research hosted a free series of six weekly online seminars on the familial aspects of autism. Each seminar was two (2) hours long, and ran from Thursday from June 23 to July 28, 2016. Each covered  a topic on autism and the family, from sex differences to family interventions, to the broader autism phenotype. The presentations were designed for students, post-doctoral fellows and other early-career investigators interested in autism research. Clinicians and established researchers 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.  

Webinar recording archives are now available.
