Center for Child Health and Development (CCHD)

The Center for Child Health and Development (CCHD) is a resource for families. When a child has trouble learning, speaking or acting, parents want answers and help. The staff at CCHD work as a team of experts to diagnose your child. Recommendations help families know where to begin. Our goal is to provide family-centered care.

CCHD staff have expertise in child development, autism spectrum disorders, Fragile X syndrome, and other developmental disabilities.


DSM-5 Turns "1": A clinical perspective of the new ASD diagnostic criteria.  

 The recent publication of DSM-5 and the new diagnostic criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) has become a "hot topic" in both parent and professional circles. This presentation will highlight the new diagnostic criteria for ASDs, as will also look at the opportunities and challenges that may accompany these changes.

Learning objectives will be accomplished through didactic presentation of the DSM-5 criteria as well as case presentations to illustrate the ASD diagnostic process and the use of specifiers to better describe the child with ASD.  The workshop will include small group discussion of cases.
