Learning Objectives

GENETICS

At the end of this learning activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify different types of genetic variables that are associated with ASD.
  2. Describe how heterogeneity in ASD is related to heterogeneity in its genetic architecture.
  3. Identify the relationship between varying clinical presentation of ASD and the probability of identifying a returnable genetic diagnosis.

NEUROPSYCHOLOGY

At the end of this learning activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the neuropsychological profile of Individuals with ASD.
  2. Describe the differences in test results between Controls, ADHD and ASD.
  3. Identify how testing can give a picture of how to understand individual’s psychological functioning in daily life.

NEURO-IMAGING

At the end of this learning activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the neural underpinning of autism.
  2. Explain the neural underpinning of psychopathology frequently associated with ASD.
  3. Identify subtype of autism based on glutamate dysregulation.
