Autism Conference at UCSB

Hundreds of autism experts from around the world gathered at UC Santa Barbara today for the 6th Annual International Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) Autism and Asperger’s Conference.

Sponsored by UCSB’s Koegel Autism Center, the two- day conference at Corwin Pavilion features scholars, educators, health care professionals, parents, and even grandparents discussing autism, Asperger’s syndrome, and cutting-edge intervention and treatments strategies.

According to Lynn Kern Koegel, clinical director of the Koegel Autism Center and the Broad Asperger Center, and one of two keynote speakers, the main focus of this year’s conference is PRT and the associated techniques for treating every aspect of autism spectrum disorder — from first words, to socialization, to social conversation — across all age levels, from infants to adults.
