Autism Navigator Program

The CHSC Regional Autism Assistance Program (RAP) is seeking 10 primary care providers to pilot an online course aimed at improving early detection of autism in toddlerhood.  Autism Navigator is a self-paced, 8-hour course developed by investigators at Florida State University that uses interactive slides with audio narration, closed captions, and illustrative video clips. Participants receive links to web resources, research briefs, and supporting documents as well as handouts to share with families.  There would be no cost to the participant for the Autism Navigator course and CMEs are available upon completion.  Participation would begin in the Fall 2018 and participants would have up to a year to finish the course.  If you are interested, please contact RAP psychology technical consultant, Kelly Pelzel, PhD, at kelly-pelzel@uiowa.edu.
