It is a key priority of the AIR-P Network and the Combating Autism Act Initiative to educate parents, professionals and the community about our clinical work and research activities in order to advance and optimize the care of our children. We are trying to do this by:
- Educating other professionals and clinicians: We will be scheduling at least one medical teleconference per year in which clinicians as well as medical students can hear about the latest news on the work we are doing to develop and improve medical practice guidelines and get tips that will enhance their knowledge about the needs of families and children with ASD.
- Educating parents, caregivers, paraprofessionals, community members and stakeholders: Each of our sites will be host at least one community dissemination event per each year of the grant to share information about what our clinicians are doing. These sessions will also teach audience members on strategies created and used by our ASD expert clinicians to better address sleep and nutrition issues.
- Educating parent volunteers and family advocates (Parent-to-Parent training): Our goal is to educate these volunteers on how to talk to other parents about our clinical and research activities. It is our hope that by providing this Parent-to-Parent education, we can enhance their skills to communicate relevant information that other parents can then use when talking to their clinicians who may or many not know about our AIR-P.
Our calendar of activities shows upcoming events and projects providing links (if available) to slides, videos and other materials from the AIR-P Training and Dissemination activities. This calendar will be updated regularly as new activities and projects are scheduled and materials become available.
