Speech Therapist Attends Eisenberg's Course

February 18, 2016

Pediatric Therapy Partners’ Fargo speech language pathologist Diane Peterson recently completed a continuing education course by Gary Eisenberg, Ph.D., focusing on autism, ADHD, and sensory issues in children.

While taking the course, attendees gained better insight into how the characteristics of autism have been redefined in recent years, and how ASDs are defined by a lack of social communication. Other topics covered included when and why medication can be helpful in cases with ADHD, and when it isn’t helpful, as well as behavioral interventions to support these children dealing with emotional outbursts.
