Autism Evidence ASAP: An ASAP Lab Talk Series

One of the ASAP Lab’s primary goals is to ensure our research is disseminated among the broader autism community in British Columbia and beyond. With this aim in mind, the ASAP Lab is starting a talk series! Autism Evidence ASAP will unpack timely and cutting-edge findings from research focused on the mental health of autistic individuals.

If you have ideas or requests for possible topics to cover, you can email us at with your suggestions! You can also sign up for our newsletter to receive updates on upcoming Autism Evidence ASAP events here.

We’re thrilled to share that our next community talk is set for February 6th at 10:30AM!
