Autism is a developmental disorder that can hinder a person’s social skills and cause them to have repetitive and restrictive behaviors.
Fordham Conversations guest host Alen Kanlic talks with two researchers about what they are doing to treat autism. Fordham University's Amanda Leeder discusses how brothers and sisters of autistic kids can be a key element in treatment. Then, Fordham University's Xiaoming Lou discusses her research on memory processing and how to develop it with kids with autism.
