022 Dr. Alycia Halladay: Autism diagnosis and treatment
In this episode, Therese Markow and Dr. Alycia Halladay discuss the current research happening on autism, as well as Dr. Halladay’s personal experience with autism through her daughter. Dr. Halladay is the Chief Science Officer of the Autism Science Foundation and has a PhD in biopsychology with postdoctoral expertise in pharmacology and toxicology. She has spent over 25 years in autism research, including the last 5 years as CSO at ASF. They continue to discuss some of the early indicators that may lead to an autism diagnosis, recognizing that autism is a spectrum with core symptoms and behaviors that can vary between genders and from person to person. Also discussed are current treatments and ongoing research into new treatments for autism and how to improve outcomes for everyone across the spectrum. Key Takeaways: Every person with autism is different. Autism is like a zebra, every one is different in their own way. Early markers are not diagnostic substitutes. The goal is to improve outcomes for everyone across the spectrum – people don’t always respond to the same behavioral interventions in the same way. "The goal is to allow parents to become more involved, but that should not, in any way, replace the need for certified, well-trained, well-educated people who are monitored and have to continuously learn their craft and hone their craft." — Dr. Alycia Halladay Connect with Dr. Alycia Halladay: Website: AutismScienceFoundation.org Show: ASFPodcast.org Connect with Therese: Website: www.criticallyspeaking.net Twitter: @CritiSpeak Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.
