The International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) is hosting a free series of six weekly online seminars on research into the familial aspects of autism.
The INSAR Summer Institute 2016 will run Thursdays from June 23 to July 28 (times vary) and will cover topics including family risk factors, parent-led interventions, autism in adulthood and autism symptoms in siblings who don’t meet the full criteria for an autism diagnosis.
The presentations are geared for students, post-doctoral fellows and other early career investigators interested in autism research. Clinicians and established researchers can benefit from overviews of topics outside their expertise. The public – including families affected by autism – are likewise welcome
