GW's Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute (ANDI) RESEARCH. CLINICAL CARE. POLICY. @GWautism
Mission: In collaboration with Children's National Health System, the GW Medical Faculty Associates and the George Washington University Hospital, the institute focuses on three main areas related to autism and neurodevelopmental disorders: research, treatment and policy. Individuals with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders will have access to assessments, interventions, medical treatments, support services and clinical trials. While faculty conduct biomedical and cognitive neuroscience research, GW will provide policymakers, public health officials and health care administrators with the information they need to improve access to quality and affordable care.

Hiring for neurodiversity is quickly emerging as a critical element in many HR strategies. It provides a competitive advantage and promotes social inclusion. Neurodivergent people are unemployed or under-employed at the same time that employers are struggling to fill high-demand jobs in a tight labor market.
We are proud to collaborate with Melwood at The Right Talent, Right Now: Breaking Workforce Barriers Summit, where Melwood is convening experts and leaders from across the country to discuss how to train, recruit, and retain neurodiverse talent and build a reliable new workforce pipeline. http://bit.ly/2Yu8TJc

During our ANDI Ice Cream Social last spring, we were fortunate to meet AJ Link, a 2nd year law student at GW. AJ has autism, and is one of many students in the Law school who identifies/is diagnosed as neurodiverse. To support this student population, he created a student organization called The Atypical Student Society (ATYPS), which aims to do the following:
-Provide a supportive community for atypical students
-Create an opportunity for neurotypical allies to meet fellow students with different cognitive conditions and learn about their different experiences
-Provide resources and strategies to help atypical students thrive in the law school environment
-Prepare law students for productive legal careers after graduation
One of ANDI’s goals as an institute has been to support the student population at GW, and collaborate with departments and organizations to promote an optimal learning environment for our neurodiverse students.
ATYPS recognizes that their success relies in part on faculty/staff collaboration and support. Organizations face challenges with continuity when key leaders graduate. AJ, the ATYPS group and ANDI invite you to join us at their first meeting. Following this meeting, we invite you to consider becoming a mentor for this organization to support their efforts and help to expand this outreach to the undergraduate student body. All are welcome.
The first ATPYS meeting will be held on Monday, September 17 at 8:10pm, at Lerner Hall, 2000 H Street, room L201.
ANDI is pleased to announce that The Faison Center will be holding its first annual conference this October 5-6.

All meals and a networking social with appetizers and drinks are included. BCBA/BCaBAs will earn 4.5 CEUs.
