Prof. Andrew Whitehouse joined our CEO Deb Goldfinch to share how he and the Telethon Kids Autism Research Team have been managing during isolation.
He’s found a couple of silver linings, both as an autism researcher and as a parent of two “kiddlywinks”.
In this video Andrew answers some great questions including: How important is Autism research? What will life look like after COVID-19? How do we manage our kids’ media intake? Should we still get our flu shots? And more.
PS: If you’re pregnant and your family has a history of autism, Andrew and his team would love your help with a study around supporting communication between parents and babies from birth. Find out more here: http://otarc.blogs.latrobe.edu.au/the-baby-aices-study/
