New methods of diagnosing Autism: A new and innovative approach from Israel

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev’s Ilan Dinstein has established the first autism laboratory in Israel. Today autism is diagnosed only according to behavioural assessments, usually at the age of 2 or 3; Dr. Dinstein’s lab will develop new clinical tools that will diagnose autism in 1-2 year old toddlers. Early diagnosis means that behavioural intervention begins earlier, dramatically improving the outcome in affected children.

Ben-Gurion University Foundation and Gesher School invite you to an evening with Dr. Ilan Dinstein

 

Wednesday 5th July at 6.30pm

Dr. Ilan Dinstein, Ph.D., a faculty member of BGU’s Department of Psychology and the Zlotowski Centre for Neuroscience since 2012, established Israel’s first neurophysiological autism lab. Dr. Dinstein and his research team use neuroimaging techniques, such as MRI and EEG, to study brain structure and function in children with autism. Their goal is to identify objective biological measures for diagnosis at earlier ages and for distinguishing between different sub-types of autism, which will enable clinicians to use earlier targeted intervention.
