12th Annual Bioethics Conference: Ethical Challenges in Autism – Diagnosis, Treatment, Support and Research

As the prevalence of autism has increased in recent decades, there is an emerging recognition of the needs of pediatric patients and their families regarding diagnosis, treatment and support. A corresponding explosion in research has yielded insights into etiology, co-morbid conditions and treatment. Together, these developments raise a number of ethical challenges for individuals with autism, families, educators and clinicians. This conference will explore these challenges and examine some of the ethical issues associated with autism, focusing on pediatric contexts. We hope you can join us for what promises to be a rewarding and educational experience.
