FAMLS Lecture Series
The Autism Treatment Network at Nationwide Children’s Hospital will host a series of small workshops featuring local experts in autism in 2013.
The Autism Treatment Network (ATN) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive, coordinated, multidisciplinary, care to children with autism and their families. Coordinated subspecialty care such as Sleep, Genetics, Neurology and GI as well as Family participation play a vital role in our Family Centered Care approach.
The ATN is the nation’s first network of hospitals and physicians dedicated to developing a model of comprehensive medical care for children and adolescents with autism. The ATN is dedicated to providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to children and youth with autism within their local communities.
The “Families with Autism Medical Lecture Series” or FAMLS is a series of interdisciplinary workshop featuring local experts discussing medical care and treatment for families with children with autism. The series will features professionals in Sleep, Genetics, GI (Gastroenterology), Neurology, Medication, Medication Management and Family Centered Care.
Family Centered Care is a key element in the design and management of effective treatment teams for children with autism. The FAMLS series will offer educational sessions to assist parents as they navigate the maze of care and treatment options for children with autism.

Join us for the two-day program which features science sessions and targeted workshop sessions focused on medical issues and approaches to providing comprehensive and integrated care for individuals with ASD.
