Dr. Tina Trudel Presenter - Autism Spectrum Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder

Lakeview’s Dr. Tina Trudel recently presented two sessions at the Pennsylvania CIU#10 training conference held in Bellefonte, PA, on August 13&14.  Dr. Trudel shared her expertise on the topics of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), diagnoses served at all three Lakeview CARF (rehabilitation ) and Joint Commission (behavioral health) accredited youth programs in Lewistown, PA, Effingham, NH and Waterford, WI.  Dr. Trudel previously served on the NH Autism Task force and was one of the authors of the text : Autism Practice Guidelines: Assessment and Intervention (2001) published by the NH Department of Health and Human Services.  Dr. Trudel noted,’ I am pleased to have the opportunity to present on Autism and Reactive Attachment Disorder, both diagnoses Lakeview is treating with increased frequency in our programs.  Both ASD and RAD are associated with many myths and fads, and it is important to share the current science, best practices and evidence–based treatment as we continue to learn more and enhance our interventions to help children with Autism Spectrum and Reactive Attachment Disorder diagnoses.’
