For those of you in the Erie area, my brother Dr. Joe Barber will be presenting Tuesday night, May 22, his first lecture at the Barber National Institute Forum from 6:00-7:15 p.m. His topic, “Upcoming Changes in the Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders,” is a “hot” issue as many have expressed concerns about the impact of the changes in DSM V.
He will discuss common issues experienced by children with ASD and associated medical and mental disorders. He will provide an overview of past, present and future diagnostic categories and the effects proposed changes will have on child and parent. Be sure to come and hear his perspective and have your questions answered.
The program is free; however registration is appreciated. Free babysitting is also offered with advance registration. Call (814) 408-6831 or visit http://bit.ly/HD5olI to register.
