Selected for Trans-Institutional Programs (TIPs) funding, this new initiative is aimed at developing an interdisciplinary model to enhance employment opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum by identifying strengths and providing supportive/assistive technologies.

This unique educational series will focus on the complexities of conducting interdisciplinary research and clinical trials that involve behavioral, environmental, and pharmaceutical interventions. The series aims to promote cross-talk among behavioral/educational and biomedical researchers with the long-term goal of developing multimodal treatments for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), including learning disabilities, genetic syndromes, and autism spectrum disorder.

This series is intended for clinicians, researchers, trainees, and students. Community members welcome.
