Format change

Due to the closure of LCC's Center for Meeting and Learning and the uncertainty around how restrictions on travel and public gatherings due to COVID-19 will affect our activities, the Managing Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities: An Update for Primary Care conference will now be offered in a fully virtual meeting format with no in-person meeting option.

This one-day conference will focus on children and youth with developmental disabilities.  During the first half of the day, sessions will focus on holistic psychopharmacological management, including the consideration of sleep, neurological and gastroenterological conditions.

The afternoon will be devoted to autism, beginning with differential diagnoses and ending with a panel of health care providers, parents and patients, discussing the transition from pediatric care to adulthood.  Ample time will be given for questions from the audience.

Target audience: Family and pediatric physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other primary care providers.
