Families – Mishpacha
Programs for Families and Children
Thursday, May 11th, 7:00 pm
Join us for a presentation by three leading researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). Learn about the cutting-edge science and therapeutic approaches being developed at BGU’s interdisciplinary Negev Autism Center.
Experts at the Negev Autism Center use neuroimaging, molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, computer science and behavioral analysis techniques to examine autism from every angle. The goal is to identify objective biological measures that allow for much earlier autism diagnoses, and to distinguish between different sub-types of autism. These discoveries can enable clinicians to use earlier targeted intervention for the highest quality of life for children with autism.

This program will be a wonderful introduction to preschool that will deepen relationships in our community and launch a meaningful beginning to the school experience for both parents and children.
