Tracing autism’s trajectories could help explain its diversity

Stelios Georgiades (PhD Assistant Professor, Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences Co-Director, McMaster Autism Research Team (MacART) Scientist, Offord Centre for Child Studies McMaster University & McMaster Children’s Hospital)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a heterogeneous neurodevelopmental condition. In this session we will: (a) share empirical findings on the heterogeneous nature of ASD; (b) discuss how the concept of chronogeneity can advance ASD science; and (c) discuss how interdisciplinary collaborations that integrate research and clinical practice can move us closer to more precise and adaptive models of care to help launch all children with ASD on a positive trajectory toward optimal outcomes.

This approach has the potential to inform the development of more individualized interventions for children and youth with ASD.
