About This Webinar

Children can be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder as early as 18 months, but delays in social and communication skills and other signs can appear earlier in life. This webinar covers the prevalence of autism in the US and common red flags.  The screening and diagnosis process of young children with autism is also discussed.  Strategies for partnering with and supporting families through this process are shared.
