Our lab periodically hosts webinars on a wide variety of topics related to autism, bringing current and relevant information to families from our local community of experts. When possible, we record these webinars and make them freely available here.
If you are looking for information on a particular topic that we have not covered, visit the more extensive video library hosted by SPARK. SPARK has hosted free monthly webinars since 2016, drawing on the expertise of autism clinicians and researchers across the United States. They will continue to host these webinars for the duration of the SPARK study, and families are not required to enroll to view the webinars.
