On 9 March 2022 Dr Peter Silberberg discussed some of the new concepts and some old misconceptions about autism with Professor Andrew Cashin and Dr Matthew Snow.
ASD queries are common consultations in general practice and accessing NDIS support is an important responsibility for GPs.
The slides from the evening are available in pptx and pdf format.
The presentation is here on our Youtube channel.
