Outcome Assessment in Developmental Disabilities: An Interprofessional Conversation

Thursday, Nov. 5, 12:00-1:00 p.m.
Room 241, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, 110 Magnolia Circle, Nashville, TN 37203

Selecting appropriate methods for assessing outcomes of intervention studies or clinical trials is a complicated but important endeavor. Consistent with the complexity of the issues involved, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center investigators who conduct research with individuals with ASD and other developmental disabilities employ a wide range of outcome assessment approaches. These include standardized behavioral measures, clinician judgment, sophisticated observational techniques, EEG/ERP, eye tracking, functional neuroimaging, and biological markers of emotional arousal and stress. Please join in the conversation as a panel of experts from Psychology, Psychiatry, and Special Education present information about their research programs and the strengths and challenges associated with their choices of assessment procedures.
