Approximately 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism,
which occurs in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups

Autism: Core Concepts for Primary Care Part 1 and Part 2 supports providers in the screening, diagnosis and management of patients with an autism spectrum disorder and related developmental delays. Sessions include a brief didactic presentation by an expert and discussion of participant-submitted cases.
