Heather Cody Hazlett, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UNC-Chapel Hill and a psychologist at the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities.

Our understanding of early brain development in autism has been informed by prospective longitudinal studies of infants who later go on to get a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This talk will review the main findings that have come from this research and the implications for early identification.
