Understanding Autism through a Cultural Lens

The International Society for Autism Research is hosting a free series of six weekly seminars related to culture and diversity in autism research. The seminars (sessions) will run Thursdays, from July 13 to August 24 (excluding July 20), and will cover a variety of topics on autism in low-resource settings, adaptation of assessments or intervention for diverse communities, and findings across the autism spectrum in diverse samples. The presentations are designed for students, post-doctoral fellows, other early-career investigators, stakeholders, and families interested in autism research. Clinicians and established researchers who would like 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.
