Autism: Interprofessional Support for Families Presentation

According to a 2020 report from the Centers for Disease Control, an estimated 1 in 54 children in the United States is currently diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Autism affects people from all socioeconomic groups and ethnicities. We have invited a panel of faculty to discuss their expertise in the research, treatment and advocacy related to autism. We will provide information about current and future initiatives at St. Cloud State University and in the broader community to support families, as well as relevant educational and career paths to support people with autism and their families.

Please watch the presentation to find out more about current and future initiatives at St. Cloud State University.

Did you know if you are a student, faculty, or staff in the School of Health and Human Services you can apply for Professional Development Funds?

The School of Health and Human Services encourages projects and activities that will enhance School and/or Department initiatives and strategic goals through research, scholarship, and professional development.

Funding will be awarded to enrolled SHHS students, faculty, and staff applicants to offset expenses associated with activities such as attending professional conferences, presenting research, developing community action projects, etc. Priority consideration will be given to students who have not previously been granted funding from the Dean’s Office.
