AutismCommunityForum2Autism Forum Unites Parents, Professionals, and Researchers

The first annual Autism Community Forum, hosted by Dr. Robert Hock and the College of Social Work, brought USC autism researchers and members of the autism community together to promote the mutual exchange of information and ideas. Researchers briefly presented their interests and findings and facilitated small group discussions to hear from parents about their needs and suggestions for future research endeavors. “It was amazing,” said one parent. “A snippet about each research study from ‘the horse's mouth’ was excellent. I especially liked the chance to get to speak with each of the presenters.” The Forum also helped to unite autism researchers across campus. They were able to discuss future partnerships to continue to expand information around autism and to coordinate research efforts across the University. “It was exciting to meet other USC autism researchers and hear about the diverse work going on across the University,” stated Dr. Jane Roberts (Psychology). The event was a great success and parents and researchers are enthusiastically anticipating next year’s forum.
