Free Webinar- Telemedicine-based Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Assessment in Toddlers


3/24/2020 8:51 PM

I wanted to share that there will be a free webinar hosted by Zachary Warren, Ph.D. Professor of Pediatrics; Executive Director, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center (VKC) / Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) offered tomorrow. See details below: 

Description: Please join us for training on a tele-diagnostic triage tool for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This tool is designed for clinicians working with young children in need of autism assessment while faced with geographic or social distancing barriers. Traditional in-person diagnostic evaluation services for young children with ASD through the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center / Treatment and Research Institute for ASD (TRIAD) have been suspended due to the COVID-19 response. We are presently converting all diagnostic evaluations of toddlers to telemedicine evaluations using a new tool (TELE-ASD-PEDS) explicitly built for this purpose and under evaluation in an ongoing trial (, NCT03847337). The TELE-ASD-PEDS was designed for experienced diagnosticians to use without the need for extensive training or standardized materials. We will review pilot data from established telemedicine programs and evaluation studies and offer training and free use of the TELE-ASD-PEDS to any provider similarly responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also briefly review how our telemedicine models for identification flow into early intervention services for families where there are developmental concerns, including ASD.

Time: Mar 25, 2020 01:00 PM in Central Time  / 2:00 PM in Eastern Time
