Autism Speaks announces multinational initiative
Date:5/9/2008

eneration need the necessary tools at their disposal to better diagnose and treat this complex brain disorder, said Dr. Rmi Quirion, Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction. An international public-private partnership will leverage expertise and resources to better coordinate research on autism with a common goal of improving diagnosis and treatment across the Americas.

Autism must be diagnosed by trained professionals using standardized behavioral instruments. Through this multinational partnership, representatives will explore the best possible models and mechanisms for maximizing both the social and scientific impact on this initiative and provide specific training to professional service providers for continuity of care. Representatives from this initiative will host the first workshop in June 2008 with a focus on awareness.
