Dr. Roger J. Jou presents a lecture on new treatments for autism

On April 18, at 6:30 p.m. Noble Conference Center: Greenwich Hospital will co-host with FAP (Friends of Autistic People) a presentation by Dr. Roger J. Jou, Medical Director at the Center for Translational Developmental Neuroscience, Yale Child Study Center on Medication, Mental Health, and Autism. Dr. Jou will present on new treatment applications of psychotropic medications and potential side effects.

Individuals living with autism are at increased risk for mental health conditions. Given the shortage of prescribers and other professionals specialized in treating mental health conditions in individuals living with autism, the aforementioned process is at risk for breakdown. This presentation addresses these various challenges by providing an overview on psychotropic medications followed by principles and practices for use in this special population. New treatment strategies are also presented, including experimental approaches targeting core social and communication vulnerabilities.

FAP is a local volunteer based non-profit advocacy organization. We have added to our mission a project of developing a community homestead farm for adults with autism. We are in the fundraising stage and we need as much publicity as possible. Dr. Jou’s lecture at the hospital is intended to educate the public but also to raise awarness and engender future contributions for our project. Thank you in advance for your support.
