In honor of Autism Acceptance and acceptance of neurodiversity, I invited Dr Tamar Nazarian Chorbadjian, a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician. 

We discuss the following:

  • The role of a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician in taking care of neurodiverse children
  • The current statistics of autism and why we think we are seeing higher rates now
  • Known risk factors 
  • How the diagnosis is made 
  • Misinformation regarding autism 
  • The importance of establishing services early for a child.
