That's right, we'll be showing a recorded presentation so all you need to do is log into your computer at home and you'll be ready to go. This will only be available to watch live so make sure and RSVP so you get the link to view it live and a reminder the day before.
A New Method for Choosing the Most Effective Treatments for Autism
An internet search shows that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of treatments available or promoted for treating children with autism. With so many choices, it is difficult for many parents to know which treatment to choose for their child. Dr. Rossignol will review a new evidence-based method to evaluate treatments with the goal of picking the most effective and best studied treatments. While there is no guarantee that a particular treatment will benefit a child with autism, those who attend this presentation will leave with a written copy of the treatments most likely to help speech, social interaction, self-stimulatory behaviors, sleep, irritability, hyperactivity, attention and more.
Dr. Dan Rossignol received his Doctorate of Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia and completed his residency in family medicine at the University of Virginia. Coming from an academic background, Dr. Rossignol searched themedical literature looking for a solution after both of his children were diagnosed with autism. He has made it his mission to research and publish in autism. Since 2006, he has 53 papers, abstracts, editorials, and book chapters concerning autism and related conditions. Dr. Rossignol is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians (FAAFP) and a Fellow of the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (FMAPS).
