I have the pleasure to introduce today’s speaker, Dr. Thomas Frazier. As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Frazier has focused his career on improving autism identification; developing and studying new treatment approaches; creating and refining measures for tracking autism symptoms and quality of life in individuals and families affected by autism. He was the director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Autism and the chief science officer at Autism Speaks. Currently he is professor of Psychology at John Carroll University.
Today Dr. Frazier will introduce to us a study trying to develop and validate an online neurobehavioral evaluation tool on SYNGAP and other neurodevelopmental genetic syndromes. This study is in part possible with a grant funded by SRF.
A recorded version of this webinar will be available on the SRF website under Webinars on the Family menu.
By the end of this presentation, you will have the opportunity to get the answer to your questions. We’d love to hear from you – please write your question in the Q&A.
