Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is classified as a complex neurodevelopment disorder affecting three main domains, which include impaired social interaction, impaired communication skills as well as sensorimotor deficits combined with stereotyped and restricted behaviours. The oral health care of clients with ASD may present a number of challenges, not least two different operating systems trying their best to interface, with, on occasion, frustrating outcomes.
This lecture aims to provide a broader understanding of individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their clinical dental management.
The webinar is open to: anyone with an interest in the oral health of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Join our panellists as they discuss the fascinating and complex interconnection between people, animals, and the environment in which they live - a concept called 'One Health'. They will explore concepts of applying a One Health approach to health issues at the animal, human and ecosystem interface to achieve health outcomes for people and animals in a shared environment.
