Autism Researchers To Share Common Platform In Quebec

Medication for treating ASD is still not developed even though it is one of the fastest growing developmental conditions in Canada that affects 1 in every 68 children. To bring in all the researchers together, the pioneers in this sector have formed the Transforming Autism Care Consortium TACC that was inaugurated on 23rd October in Quebec.

This is seen as an effort to promote advanced research in autism cure and the network involves 44 member researchers from as many as five university hospital centers along with 44 member researchers from seven universities. Along with them, 227 other trainee members will also take part in the conference from different communities.

The conference was held for two days that saw eminent scientists from the US; UK and France along with Canada take part in discussions. It also encourages parents to take part in the program so that they can easily cope with behavior issues of autistic children.

Considering the fact that the permanent cure cannot be achieved through individual efforts, the researchers have decided to form a platform where they can share their ideas and bring in some solution to this growing health problem. The data will be available for free and researchers can make use of them for their development work.
