Fordham Conversations: Autistic Spectrum Disorder

by Alen Kanlic
Amanda Leeder and Alen Kanlic

Robin Shannon

This week we learn how two researchers are tackling autism.

Autism is a developmental disorder that can hinder a persons social skills and cause them to have repetitive and restrictive behaviors.

This week two researchers join Fordham Conversations to talk about what they are doing to treat autism. Fordham University Doctoral Candidate Amanda Leeder discusses how the brothers and sisters of kids with autistism can be a key element in treatment. Later, Fordham University PhD student Xiaoming Lou tells us about her research on memory processing and how to develop it in people with autism.

Check out Autism Speaks or the Autism Program at Yale to learn more about this developmental disorder.
