MP3 PDF Slides Recorded Presentation

Since we donít have a clear picture of the specific neurological systems driving autism, how can a neurologist take an integrative approach to evaluate and improve contributing problems? Are there non-drug interventions that can effectively target basic mechanisms to improve autistic symptoms and underlying pathologies? Given autismís complexity and heterogeneity, how can evidence guide practitioners and how can practitioners generate evidence?
