Mercy is offering a free family forum on autism spectrum disorders Tuesday, April 9th from 6-8pm at Hammons Heart Institute.
One in 88 children is now diagnosed with autism, making it the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the country.
Mercy Springfield Communities says local experts will present information on diagnosing autism, along with therapies and medical management of the disorder.
The presenters include Doctor Kerri Duncan, a well known autism specialist and consultant, along with Mercy experts Doctor Philip Mothersead and Doctor Kyle John.
The forum is free and refreshments will be served.
