Seminar Title: Developmental Disorders: co-morbidity, subgroups and variability

On Friday 29th June 2012 there is a one day workshop which discusses co-morbidity, variability and sub-groups within neurodevelopmental disorders being hosted at Kingston University.

This workshop is part of a seminar series entitled 'Neuro-developmental disorders: Exploring sensitive methods of assessment across development'  which explores recent findings in neurodevelopmental disorders, with a particular focus on 1) the new research tools and methods used, 2) discussion of the wider applicability of these new tools and methods across different neurodevelopmental disorders, 3) identifying future challenges or controversies when studying neurodevelopmental disorders using a developmental approach.

The seminar series hopes to bring together specialists and established researchers as well as post-graduates, post-doctoral researchers and early career researchers in neurodevelopmental disorders.

The series is sponsored by the British Psychological Society and the Williams syndrome Foundation UK and is being organised by Dr Jo van Herwegen, Dr Emily Farran and Dr Debbie Riby. In total three seminars will be held around the UK between June 2012 and April 2013.
