I attended a free presentation the other night, that was provided by The Little Friends Center for Autism, regarding the proposed changes to the definition of Autism and ASD diagnostic criteria. It was a wonderful presentation, which I found very informative. I would like to thank Dr. Cynthia A. W. Brouillard, Psy.D for attempting help special needs parent obtain and understand all the correct information. Here is the PowerPoint presentation she gave:
I attempted to take notes throughout the 2 hours presentation, and will also share the notes I took. Please note this is what I “heard” and “wrote” as she was talking and answering questions. I hope the notes make sense and compliment the presentation. Here are my notes:
I have not had time to read all the brochures and information I picked up at the presentation, but The Little Friends Center for Autism appears to be wonderful organization. I look forward to learning more about them and perhaps attending some of their future trainings/workshops. If you would like more information about them, here is their website:
