Why early detection?
An estimated 1 in 100 children have an autism spectrum disorder.
The majority are not diagnosed until they are four years old, more than two years after they can be reliably diagnosed and receive life-changing intervention.
About Dr Josephine Barbaro
Dr Barbaro is a leader in early detection research. Her groundbreaking work to identify behavioural ‘red flags’ in young children is used around the world to diagnose babies as young as 12 months.
Dr Barbaro is also the pioneer behind ASDetect - an app which empowers parents and caregivers to identify autism earlier and more accurately than ever before.
La Trobe's Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC) is Australia’s first centre dedicated to researching Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This event is a free public lecture for La Trobe alumni, La Trobe staff and students, and members of the local community.
