Does your child struggle in a mainstream classroom? Are you concerned that your child may be anxious, overwhelmed or inattentive at school? Does your child struggle to understand new academic concepts or lessons? Do you think your child needs extra support to achieve academic or social success? If you can relate to any of these questions, please join the presenters to explore when a psychoeducational assessment may be warranted for your child. Within the current session, presenters will provide parents and supports with an overview of how psychoeducational assessments can be helpful in identifying a child’s strengths, areas of difficulty, and learning style, as well as help caregivers learn how to advocate through the educational system and community supports to foster growth and success.

Restricted Interests in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): How do they engage the brain?

6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

One of the lesser studied symptoms in ASD is restricted interests. In a series of studies conducted at the University of Calgary and Alberta Children's Hospital we asked: how does the brain respond to restricted interests? In this presentation I will talk about how we use techniques like electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the brain, and what the images we get tell us about how restricted interests are processed in the brain.
