Investing in Autism Research: NeuroDevNet

Posted January 9, 2015

Join NeuroDevNet on Jan 13 at 10:15 a.m. -11 a.m. for the announcement of the renewal of NeuroDevNetLOGOKids Brain Health (formerly Neurodevnet), a Vancouver-based national research network that focuses on early diagnosis and treatments for neurodisabilities, including autism. The event will be held on the campus of BC Children’s Hospital.

NeuroDevNet would like to encourage ACT community families to attend with their children who would feel comfortable in a potentially crowded setting with bright lights and amplified sound. Following the presentations, NeuroDevNet encourages you to interact with the researchers and policy makers gathered, to discuss priorities and needs that need to be addressed in research and services. Media may also be present and will be interested in connecting with you.

As National Network of Centres of Excellence funded by the federal government, NeuroDevNet and its researchers are committed to improving the wellbeing of children with autism, cerebral palsy, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, and the wellbeing of their families.
