People with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often benefit from individualized interventions that address the core features of autism and their medical and behavioral symptoms. In some cases, these interventions include medications that help with issues such as aggression, depression, hyperactivity/attention, irritability, and seizures. Gregory Barnes, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, and Jeremy Veenstra-Vander Weele, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry; Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, and Director, Fragile X Treatment Research Program, will review current research and practice on the safe and effective use of medication for these symptoms. There will be a question and answer period for attendees.
Child care is available with advance request. There is no charge to attend this event.
