CDC to launch new autism curriculum at AAP national conference & exhibition
Date:10/14/2011

BOSTON -- A new autism curriculum developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), will be launched at the 2011 AAP National Conference & Exhibition (NCE) in Boston Oct. 15-17.

"Autism Case Training -- A Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Curriculum" will educate future pediatricians on the fundamental components of identifying, diagnosing, and managing autism spectrum disorders through real-life, case-based scenarios. The curriculum is a flexible, interactive learning tool that emphasizes practical skills for patient and parent interaction. The curriculum consists of seven case-based studies that can be taught individually or as part of a series.

"Pediatricians need to be involved in the identification, diagnosis and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders," said Dr. Georgina Peacock of CDC's National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, and one of the lead creators of this training.

"To do this, pediatricians need to build knowledge and skills so that they can support their patients and families. The 'Autism Case Training' curriculum was created through the collaboration of many experts in the field and provides a flexible resource for instructors of pediatricians to improve education about taking care of children with ASDs."

The curriculum competencies align with the Academic Pediatric Association Educational Guidelines.

"The curriculum is the result of an incredible collaboration. More than 50 developmental-behavioral pediatric professionals gave their time and expertise to ensure quality content and an easy instructional experience," Peacock said.

Curriculum developers will be at booth 313 in the exhibit hall of the NCE to showcase the curriculum and answer any questions. To download "Autism Case Training" materials visit http://www.cdc.gov/actearly. For additional information or to request a CD of the curriculum, e-mail ActEarly@cdc.gov.
