Meet part of our research team!
In this Issue: Meet CAR Researchers 

In this edition of Autism Dispatch, we continue our series of interviews with the families, researchers and clinicians who make up the CAR community. We asked two post-doctoral fellows and two research assistants about why they chose to study autism, what is most exciting about their work, and what is the most important lesson they have learned in their career thus far. 
In this issue you'll meet ...
Meet Dr. Guthrie

Dr. Guthrie is a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Autism Research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who focuses on early identification of autism and developmental trajectories for children with autism.

Read more about Dr. Guthrie and why she chose a career in autism research. 
Meet Dr. Sariyanidi

Dr. Sariyanidi is a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Autism Research who specializes in computer vision engineering to digitize facial and body movements to enhance our understanding and detection of autism.

Read more about Dr. Sariyanidi and h ow he applies his engineering background to research at CAR.
Meet Ms. Thomas

Ms. Thomas is a research assistant working with Dr. Judith Miller at the Center for Autism Research on a study to understand  how young children with and without ASD respond to their name.

Meet Ms. Bertollo

Ms. Bertollo is a research assistant  at the Center for Autism Research, working along side Dr. Benjamin Yerys on his executive functioning research. 

Thank you to all the riders, runners, virtual participants and supporters who didn't let a little (well, a lot) of rain dampen the spirit of the inaugural Eagles Autism Challenge. We ran, biked, celebrated and danced to the music, and we had an amazing time with all of you!

You Can Help Us Learn More about ASD!

Advances in understanding autism and related disorders are only possible as a direct result of the participation of individuals and families. We have opportunities for all ages, and you do not need an autism diagnosis to participate.

Simply put - scientists cannot make real progress without your help. We need you!
