Susan Hamre – An In-Depth Look at Current Sensory, Communication, Relationship, & Behavioral Treatments
Time is not your friend when working with children on the autism spectrum. Recent studies suggest that the impact of early intervention can significantly improve outcomes, lead to fewer delays in communication and development, and possibly even eliminate symptoms – but time is critical.
This entry is intended to help participants identify early ASD scores that are often overlooked and create time critical support systems to enhance academic preparedness, empathy, emotional regulation, and impulsive control over the most formative years.
Interactive laboratories, videos, and case studies embody an effective multimodal approach, as Susan Hamre, director of the Center for Autism Training in Chicago, demonstrates the real-world applications and results of today’s most effective early intervention strategies.

usually with pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also with various treatments, such as psychotherapy, external tires and traction, medical devices, biologicals and ionizing radiation.
