Global Knowledge Translation for Research on Early Identification and Intervention in Autism

Chairs: Mayada Elsabbagh and Petrus de Vries There is increasing appreciation of the need to enhance research impact through the iterative and dynamic process of knowledge translation: The synthesis, dissemination, exchange, and application of knowledge to improve quality of life for people affected by autism. This SIG will continue the dialogue on identifying knowledge gaps, barriers, and action priorities with a particular emphasis on global knowledge translation in the area of early identification and intervention for autism. The theme of this year’s activities will be “To intervene or not to intervene: Effective and ethically sound application of evidence-based intervention models in diverse settings.”
