Workshop: Interprofessional Course on Developmental Disabilities in Pediatrics
May 18 (Sat)
8:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m.

Conference Purpose
Twenty-five percent of outpatient pediatric visits are for developmental or behavioral concerns. For example, 1 in 59 children have an autism spectrum disorder, and up to 17% of children have a developmental disability or behavior concern. Although developmental disabilities are common, the needs of these children can be complex. This conference will use an interprofessional approach to identifying and managing intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism, ADHD, and neonatal abstinence syndrome. Patient- and family-centered care and web-based resources will be emphasized.

CME/CNE credits are available for physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists.
