FREE CME COURSE
A course for community pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric and family nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, special education teachers, school administrators, audiologists, social workers, clinical and developmental psychologists, and related professionals.

RATIONALE:
Twenty-five percent of outpatient pediatric visits are for developmental or behavioral concerns. For example, 1 in 68 children have an autism spectrum disorder and up to 17 percent of children have a developmental disability or behavior concern. Although developmental disabilities are common, the needs of these children can be complex.

This conference will use an interprofessional approach to identifying and managing developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, and behavior problems. We will also discuss the causes for intellectual and developmental disabilities, including congenital Zika. Patient- and family-centered care and web-based resources will be emphasized. CME credits are available for physicians.
