Autism Speaks Hosts Gastroenterology Workshop
Responding to community interest, Autism Speaks hosted a workshop on autism and gastroenterology in Boston on October 13, 2006. The objectives of the workshop were to (1) review current scientific evidence for GI issues associated with autism, (2) develop consensus scientific priorities for autism gastroenterology research, and (3) suggest an approach to establish best clinical practices for autism gastroenterology.

In an effort to capture all perspectives on this topic, participants included members of the Autism Speaks Scientific Advisory Committee and leading experts on pediatric gastroenterology and autism. The discussion was comprehensive and productive. Please watch this space for a synopsis of the consensus recommendation.
