Best Practices in Developmental Screening - Town Halls  
An inside look, from the systematic approach of Regional Center clinicians and therapists, to strategies utilized by local pediatricians. 
Funded by First 5 LA
   
This series of events in Los Angeles County are an opportunity for pediatricians to connect face to face with clinicians and staff from each of the six Regional Centers. In a multidisciplinary approach, attendees will learn best practices in developmental screening and early detection of autism spectrum disorders, and engage with Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists. 
Representatives from Los Angeles Unified School District will address the services provided once a child enters the public school system. 

On the schedule are events covering the San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center, North Los Angeles Regional Center (Both San Fernando and Antelope Valleys), and Westside Regional Center. Events to include Eastern LA, Lanterman, Harbor and South Central LA Regional Centers will begin in January.  

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events.
