Early Red Flags for Autism Spectrum Disorder

Research strongly supports early intervention for ASD as the most effective treatment option, and ASD can now be identified at a much earlier age than ever before. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between typically developing behavior and unusual behavior, however. This brief workshop focuses on identifying “red flags” that can be seen at early ages and might indicate the need for a comprehensive evaluation and/or treatment. In this workshop, participants will learn about:

  • Red flags for behavior
  • Red flags for communication
  • Common co-occurring disabilities and medical conditions
  • The diagnostic process
  • Resources for parents

Instructor: Kawena Begay, Ph.D., NCSP
