UofL program aims to help health care workers recognize, treat autism

Health care professionals who work with children will benefit from a series of seminars offered by the University of Louisville’s Kentucky Autism Training Center to help them recognize, diagnose and treat those with autism and related disorders.

“The programs are based on case studies—real-life scenarios—to help health care workers see what worked in the past,” said the center’s Assistant Director Rebecca Grau.

The seminars, Autism Case Training: A Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Curriculum, are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and cost $25. Dates and locations are:

April 12 – Kosair Charities Community Room, 982 Eastern Parkway, Louisville

July 19 – Barren River Lake State Resort, 1149 State Park Road, Lucas

July 20 – Eastern Kentucky University’s Carl D. Perkins Building, 301 Perkins Building, Richmond

Doctors, nurses and others can earn continuing education credit for attending the seminars. Registration is required in advance. For more information, contact Grau at 502-852-7799 or Rebecca.grau@louisville.edu.
