Noteworthy Activity #249C
Meet & Greet and Discussion With Richard Frye
Sunday, May 30, 2021
1:00 PM–2:00 PM
RICHARD FRYE (Phoenix Children's Hospital)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a behaviorally defined disorder. We are learning that ASD is associated with many medical co-occurring conditions such as sleep problems, gastrointestinal disorders, seizures, allergies and anxiety, just to name a few. In addition, we are learning that there are underlying biological abnormalities with how the cells and body work. These medical and biological abnormalities may not only be related to ASD symptoms but, most importantly, may be impeding successful habilitation if they are not addressed. Thus, a multidisciplinary medical approach is necessary to evaluate and treat ASD in order to provide optimal outcomes. Stop by this discussion event to talk about these issues more with Dr. Richard Frye.
