Dr. Stelios Georgiades, MacART co-director, is one of 11 autism experts chosen to be a part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Working Group, chaired by Health Minister Rona Ambrose. "It shows that the time is right to work collaboratively, at a national level, to make sure these families receive the supports they need irrespective of where they live," said Georgiades. "Consultations will address important topics such as information sharing and research, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and ways to support Canadian families affected by ASD across the lifespan."
