Emily Gardiner is a PhD student in developmental psychology. She's involved in an upcoming panel discussion on families and autism, to take place on Friday, April 5, 7 pm, at SFU's Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Strategy Room (420), 580 West Hastings Street, Vancouver.

The Autism & Developmental Disorders lab is operated out of the Psychology Department at Simon Fraser University. Under the direction of Dr. Iarocci, we conduct research on individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism, Down syndrome, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. Our goal is to improve quality of life for both the individuals affected by these disorders, as well as for their families.

The Autism and Developmental Disorders Lab will be co-hosting a FREE event with
the support of the Laurel Foundation. The goal is to discuss quality of life among
families of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. We are delighted to present a
diverse panel that includes researchers, clinicians, service providers, and Ministry of
Children and Family Development (MCFD) representatives.

Admission is free. Please RSVP: asdandfamilies@gmail.com
